Footballer-turned-Hollywood star Vinnie Jones is coming to Stevenage to reveal all about his controversial career.
The former Chancellor’s School, Brookmans Park, pupil will be appearing at the Gordon Craig Theatre tonight (Sunday) as part of a nationwide tour organised by Olexy Productions.
Originally from Hertfordshire, Vinnie will take part in a revealing question and answer session on his celebrated career that took him from the football pitch to the Hollywood Hills.
The soccer hard man started his football career in 1984 and played for Wimbledon, Leeds United, Sheffield United and Chelsea, as well as Wales.
Renowned for his tough guy image on the pitch, Vinnie holds the record for the quickest ever booking in a football match, being yellow carded after just three seconds for a foul on the opposition player.
Vinnie capitalised on this hard man image to become a film star, making his movie debut in Guy Ritchie’s gangster flick Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
He went on to appear in films such as Gone in 60 Seconds, X Men: The Last Stand and Mean Machine.
During his Stevenage show he will also talk about his colourful and sometimes controversial personal life, which has seen him move to LA, become a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother, be convicted for an ‘air rage’ incident and beat skin cancer.
Speaking ahead of the event, Vinnie said: “I am really looking forward to coming back to the UK for my tour.
“I can’t wait to share untold stories with fans in different areas of the country, especially in Stevenage.”
Vinnie Jones at The Gordon Craig Theatre on Sunday, May 3 starts at 8pm. Standard tickets cost £25.
VIP tickets, including a meet and greet and exclusive picture of the evening, are £50. VIP tickets can only be booked via calling the box office on 01438 242300.
