Slayer with Lamb of God

July 27, 2017

Thrash metal giants Slayer have never been afraid of generating controversy, their music taking in one taboo subject after another, but they're also undoubtedly one of the genre's most important acts. The band emerged in the late 80, and with Tom Araya leading the line on vocals, they haven't let up since. Joining Slayer on this tour are fellow modern metal greats Lamb of God, who have announced they'll take a long hiatus following these dates.

PJ Masks Live! Time To Be A Hero

October 14-15, 2017

Adored by millions of young viewers across the globe, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko are the starring trio of Disney Junor's animated show PJ Masks. In 2017, they're coming to the stage, in their first ever live show! Produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Round Room Presents​, PJ Masks Live! captures all the action-packed adventure of the show in a fully immersive, musical journey.

Ricky Gervais

October 25, 2017

Controversial British comic Ricky Gervais is headed back this way - for his first global tour in seven years, since his Out of England I & II Tour in 2010. With Gervais promising "Humanity is my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet", be prepared for his irascible and caustic sense of humor, that has got considerably darker in the last 12 months following various political upheavals! 2016 marked a huge year for Gervais, with his cinematic release David Brent: Life On The Road and Netflix project Special Correspondents. There's simply no stopping this British bulldog!

Chris Rock

December 6-8, 2017

Comedy titan Chris Rock returns to the road for his first stand-up tour in nine years! These shows will be comprised of all new material, with the recent US election giving Rock plenty of subject matter to draw upon. He'll also have a chance to reflect on his gig hosting the 88th Academy Awards, a show which was mired in the OscarsSoWhite controversy.
