Comedian Rhod Gilbert is the latest act to be announced for Swansea brand new arena.

Appearing on Thursday 28 April 2022, Carmarthen-born Rhod will be bringing his acclaimed ‘Book of John’ show to the city.

Publicity material for the show says: “Rhod is back on the road; as funny as ever, but like never before. Rhod Gilbert: The Book of John is a little bit raw, very personal, and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense. This is Rhod, but different, the same, but not. It’s a show about hitting rock bottom, and just when you think things can’t get any worse, you meet a bloke…a bloke called John.”

The development of the Arena will be a significant landmark within Swansea’s city centre and its £135 million transformational Copr Bay Phase One project, which is being delivered by the Council working alongside development manager RivingtonHark.

Once complete, it will comprise the brand-new 3,500 capacity indoor arena and conference centre – next to Swansea Marina – as well as new independent restaurants, city centre apartments, a 1.1-acre coastal park, two new multi-storey car parks, and a new ‘gateway’ landmark pedestrian and cyclist bridge over Oystermouth Road, to provide a seamless passageway connecting the revived city-centre to Swansea’s Marina and its famed coastline.
