WWE announces dates for May 2017 UK and Ireland tour


WWE announced the dates for their return to the United Kingdom and Ireland in May 2017 which will be a nine-day tour with a total of eight live events. Tickets for all the UK shows will go on sale on November 25 at 10AM GMT.

WWE usually holds their European tour in April a week after WrestleMania but it seems that the company will be shaking things up when it comes to touring next year.

The tour starts on Friday, May 5 at Dublin’s 3Arena in Ireland and then the next day it’s off to Northern Ireland for a live event in Belfast at the SSE Arena on Saturday, May 6.

The trip to England starts on Sunday, May 7 with a show at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. Monday Night Raw will be held at The O2 Arena in London on May 8 while the Smackdown brand will be at the Bournemouth International Center in Bournemouth on the same day as well.

Smackdown Live is also at The O2 Arena in London on Tuesday, May 9. Both Raw and Smackdown will air on a few hours tape delay that week. On Wednesday, May 10 there is one show at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. Sheffield gets its turn on Thursday, May 11 at the Sheffield Centre and Newcastle is the final stop on Friday, May 12 with a show at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena.
