Comedian John Bishop receives award for record-breaking ticket sales for ECHO Arena shows

 

JOHN Bishop crowned a memorable year by being presented with a special award by the ECHO arena.

The comedian was handed the accolade to mark his show Sunshine becoming the best-selling event ever at the waterfront venue.

John, whose May show was a sell-out, has sold 56,000 tickets for his run of stand-up appearances at the arena which started on Friday and runs until this Wednesday.

And the show has proved so popular with Merseyside comedy fans that the 44-year-old has now added a seventh date at the venue, on June 5 next year.

He said: “The award is for the most tickets sold in a single run. Apparently I’ve beaten Mamma Mia! by 1,000.

“I feel very, very good about being back at the arena. And as far as the experience goes, now that I’ve done Wembley and the MEN, I can appreciate how good the ECHO arena is.

“With the new date in June, what I’m hoping is that I can finish the Sunshine tour in Liverpool. That’s what I’d like to do.”

ECHO arena general manager Tim Banfield said: “We’re thrilled to present John with this award. He’s a fantastic comedian and great ambassador for Liverpool.

“The depth of affection that people have for him in Liverpool is demonstrated by the unprecedented success of these shows.”
