Next week, we get the long-awaited return of The League Of Gentlemen to our screens, in a trio of new episodes to mark the 20th anniversary of the League. Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith all star, and have co-written the new shows with Jeremy Dyson.
And now, it’s been revealed that for the first time in many, many years, The League Of Gentlemen is going back on tour. A live arena tour is being planned for 2018, and as Shearsmith told The I Paper in a new interview, “I think it’s at its best live. I think it felt the most alive in the fact that we could play with that uncomfortableness – when it would get really dark and the audience would think, ‘this is awful now, please make it stop’, and then you punctuate it with a laugh. The relief would be palpable”.
Dates haven’t been announced for the tour yet, but we’ll let you know when you they are.
