Loose Women’s first live UK tour set to rake in whopping £1.6m at box office

Loose Women ’s first live tour is heading for a money-spinning sell-out as tens of thousands of people rushed to buy seats costing up to £52 a pop.

The panel of tough-talking telly stars including presenter Christine Lampard and ex-Corrie star Denise Welch will criss-cross the UK in a 16-date tour later this summer.

And just days after announcing the tour, many theatres are sold out or with just single spots available and others are heading in the same direction.

That means around 34,000 will see the shows and more than £1.6m in box office fees has been collected.

And secondary-selling site Viagogo has listings for seats for more than £100 as folk turn to touts to bag a spot at one of the shows.

Kicking off at Birmingham Symphony Hall on 1 September, the Loose Women Live! tour will end with a night at the world-famous London Palladium.
