You've now got a second chance to grab your ticket!

Back in April 2016, one of the biggest gaming YouTubers in the world announced a 4-date live tour that sold out in less than a day. But thankfully, Dan The Diamond Minecart has heard our cries of pain after missing out on buying our own ticket and has just announced 9 more show dates across the UK in the hopes that even more of his fans will be able to check out DanTDM On Tour.

Originally only playing in Brighton, Ipswich, Milton Keynes and Glasgow, you will now be able to find Dan, his pet pug Elly and a variety of his most recognised characters on tour dates across the UK in a show set to "create a fantastic, family-friendly experience for all ages". In a vlog uploaded to his main channel, Dan also teased that "if these dates go really well, we can take it somewhere else... stay tuned" leading fans to ask whether he's planning to take his energetic show internationally in the near future.

Kicking off on the 30th of July in the Brighton Dome, you will now be able to check out The Diamond Minecart on these brand new dates, which are all available to purchase tickets for from 10am GMT on the 7th of July:

  • Sheffield City Hall - Saturday 17th September
  • Plymouth Pavilions - Saturday 1st October
  • Salford, The Lowry - Sunday 9th October
  • Liverpool Philharmonic - Sunday 16th October
  • Leicester De Montford Hall - Friday 21st October
  • Newcastle City Hall - Tuesday 25th October
  • St David's Hall Cardiff - Thursday 27th October
  • Edinburgh Festival Theatre - Sunday 29th October

In his announcement video for the extra tour dates, Dan reflects on the day back in April when he woke up to find out his entire line-up had sold out; "I'm so glad that you guys are as excited as I am to hang out with you and just show you a really amazing show that we've been working hard on every single day". And now, as an extra treat, with every ticket purchased for the brand new dates fans can upgrade to get an exclusive signed copy of the new Diamond Minecart book, Trayaurus and the Enchanted Crystal. Will you be getting your hands on it?
