About this event
He’s a national treasure who became a household name as one half of Cannon and Ball.
Tommy Cannon played the straight man to the late Bobby Ball as the double act dominated prime-time TV for more than a decade.
An actor, singer and comic, Tommy has lived an extraordinary life – most recently being lauded by rock star Robbie Williams, at a sell-out concert in Manchester.
Now he’s returning to the stage in 'Rock On Tommy', a variety show featuring clips, incredible stories, tons of laughter, audience Q&As and more. Fans can meet the man who has provided laughter to millions since debuting in 1968 on the talent show, 'Opportunity Knocks'.
Please note: This event takes place in April 2024
