Marvel Universe Live, the live action family arena show, has added extra takes to locations across the country including Nottingham, Glasgow and The O2 in London.

The new dates were added due to high demand from families hoping to see the show during its tour, which started on 8 September at Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham.

“We are absolutely blown away by the market response to the on-sale of Marvel Universe Live,” said Steven Armstrong, VP of Europe North at Feld Entertainment, Inc. “We are working diligently with our partners across the UK to ensure that as many families as possible have the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular live show for the very first time. The audience will feel like they’ve been transported into the Marvel Universe, with an engrossing storyline and non-stop stunts.”

The show features more than 50 cast members and uses the latest innovation in set design, aerial pyrotechnics and stunts, including the largest flying system ever used for a live arena tour.

“To see all the elements of this spectacular live show come together has been truly incredible,” said Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada. “The technology utilised in the show is not only going to blow your mind, it is going to take you to a whole new Marvel world like nothing British families have ever seen before.”
