Bill Bailey confirms return to East of England Arena & Events Centre

Star of Strictly Come Dancing, Black Books, and veteran of a dozen wildly successful comedy tours, Bill Bailey has confirmed that he will be returning to the East of England Arena and Events Centre on January 2, 2022, as part of his "En Route to Normal" tour, beginning in Plymouth on December 12, 2021.

In this new show, Bill ponders the questions that this moment in history has thrown up, and tries to see a way through the strange unreality of our new world. Tracing lines through chaotic moments in history, Bill seeks out parallels where human resilience and our ability to endure has got us through times of strife. 

In a show whose title had been written before anyone had even heard of COVID, 'En Route to Normal' has become not just a funny, heartwarming mix of stories, music and history, but a personal mission to find our way through these strange times.

Jason Lunn, venue director, East of England Arena, said, "Welcoming Bill Bailey back to the Arena will be a pleasure, and I'm certain his show will be every bit as popular as when he was last here in 2018 with 'Larks in Transit'."

Tickets for the show, and all the other shows in the tour, are available from
