How to get Hamilton tickets to first-ever UK tour as new dates go on sale
The story of tonight is that tickets for Hamilton’s 2023 UK tour are on sale now. Find out how to see the hit musical in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and more.
This November, Hamilton is going on its first-ever tour around the UK and Ireland — and how are you going to say no to this?
The musical has announced 12 new legs of the epic tour that will last from November 2023 to October 2025, with a new date going on sale today (Monday 15th May). The hit West End musical is kicking things off with a four-month residency at the Manchester Palace Theatre before heading over to Edinburgh, Bristol, Birmingham, and more.
For all the Hamilton novices out there, the show tells the story of its namesake American founding father Alexander Hamilton on his journey from poverty to politics. Covering the War of Independence, the US constitution and the establishment of America’s first national bank, the play delves into all the intense global issues of the time, whilst also focusing on the personal lives of its side characters, including George Washington, the Schuyler Sisters and Aaron Burr, sir.
Poignant, emotional, and downright catchy, Hamilton has dominated the stage since opening in 2015 and has gone on to win a Pulitzer Prize for drama, 11 Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards. In 2017, the musical came to the UK where it still plays in the Victoria Palace Theatre.
While you can still catch Hamilton at its London home, this winter you also have the option to see it in a city that’s perhaps more convenient for you.

Hamilton tour 2023/5: What are the UK and Ireland dates in venues?
When the tour announcement was made, one of the show’s producers, Cameron Mackintosh, pointed out the importance of taking it up north. He said: "Opening first in Manchester, followed by Edinburgh – [we're] not far from where the real story of Alexander Hamilton began in Ayrshire, where his father was born in the 1700s, before he moved to Nevis in the West Indies."
