If you're a League of Gentlemen fan and enjoyed the oddball comics' most recent return to TV screens in recent months, you'll be happy to hear this news.

Reece Shearsmith and his fellow Royston Vasey characters are embarking on a live tour that will hit Dublin and Belfast this August.

'The League of Gentlemen Live Again!' is their first tour in over 12 years and will stop off at Dublin's 3Arena on August 17th and Belfast's SSE Arena on August 18th.

They said: "The League of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all. We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country. Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”

Tickets are €45/£33 and both dates are on sale from usual outlets this coming Thursday, March 15th at 9am.
