Fans have backed comedy to win for the first time, with Kevin taking this year’s prize.

Ticketmaster, the global ticketing marketplace leader that provides 500 million tickets to fans across twenty-nine countries, has polled live entertainment fans globally from its 200 million database to discover the most popular live events of 2018.

Kevin’s sold-out Brand New tour is the UK’s Ticket of The Year, for his live show at the SSE Hydro – a remarkable feat given that no comedian has ever taken top spot in the UK before. Bridges’ recent tour earned him the Gie It Laldy award from the Glasgow arena, recognising his contribution to the live event industry, having sold more tickets to the venue than any other solo artist.

Kevin said: ‘Thank you to everybody who came out to see me live this year and a very special thank you to those who went as far as voting for me as their favourite show of the year. It’s been a while since the result of a vote has made me happy. You have restored my faith in democracy. Thank you all and see you another time.’
