What's taken him so long? He hasn't performed there since 1998!
Jerry Seinfeld has just announced that he will be doing a one-night show at UK's O2 Area on June 3rd, next year.
When asked why it's been so long since he's performed in the UK, Jerry responded:
"Well it's not because of the food. I like the food, I'm a big fan of brown things. I've been very busy here in the States and I just wasn't even aware that there was an audience [in the UK] that really wanted me to come back until we spoke to a promoter who was very confident."
Unfortunately, though, looks like many of his UK fans are NOT happy with the expensive ticket prices! With ticket prices ranging between £70 and £100, ticket buyers have expressed their disappointment.
"I'm terribly, terribly sorry," Seinfeld said. "I really had to let the English promoter guide us in that because I don't know the market that well. So I'm going to complain to him. People complain to me … I'm going to complain to him. I hate to hear about grumbling. But there's got to be a certain amount of grumbling about anything doesn't there?"
True…but those ticket prices seem pretty steep. Let's hope his fans will think he's worth it.
