Cantona - The Return Of The King

Cantona - The Return Of The King

An Evening With Eric Cantona | Olympia Theatre | 30 October

One of the most influential footballers of all time takes to the stage this October for a handful of selected UK & Irish dates.

Eric Cantona plays several dates only in London, Bournemouth Nottingham, Birmingham, Belfast and Dublin and Salford.

Expect the evening to revolve round football and the inside stories from the clubs he's played for will be par for the course. Eric will discuss his favourite players and why, the reason he retired at the peak of his career and what it was about Manchester that he loved. He'll talk about what it was like making the Ken Loach movie, Looking For Eric.

But Eric Cantona promises to deliver much more. He'll spill the beans (he's just not sure yet which ones) and then some.

With every performance taking the form of an hour's informal interview each date promises to be informative, revealing and compellingly original – a must for football fans everywhere.

Due to phenomenal demand a second show on Thursday 1 November has been announced.
As the man himself says:

"I am really looking forward to coming to the UK and Ireland to talk onstage. I have lots of stories to tell about my days at the greatest club of all, my beloved Manchester United with the best fans in the world.

You can expect a look back at my United career with a replaying of a few of my goals on the big screen and I'll be sharing what they meant' to me at the time.

I've also got a lot to say about my favorite manager Sir Alex and the five years we spent together, hard to believe it's over 20 years ago. There's more as well, I've had a long career in the movies now and made a few well known adverts as well, let's talk about some of those whilst I'm here"
