Ricky Gervais to Tour as David Brent?
Date Posted: 15/10/13
Comedian Ricky Gervais is reportedly planning to head out on a full UK tour, performing as his alter ego David Brent.
Gervais has already taken to the stage as his The Office creation Brent and after critical acclaim is planning to play shows all over the country.
A source told Gigwise that Gervais is already in talks over concerts around the UK and promoters are lining him up to play a special one-off gig at Wembley.
Gervais has got former Razorlight songwriter Andy Burrows on board in his live band and the pair will collaborate on tracks for an album to be released in 2014.
"There has been interest from a major record label and an album will hit shelves early next year, with Andy credited as the major songwriter," said the insider.
Burrows, who wrote tracks such as the Razorlight hit America, performed on stage with Gervais at London's Bloomsbury theatre and demand for a full UK tour is expected to be high as the show sold out in just a minute.
If Gervais books a Wembley show in as Brent, London hotels will be popular among fans.
