Russell Peters will be back to perform in India this October as part of a return leg of his 'Deported World Tour'.

In this phase II of Zee Live’s Supermoon, the comedian will perform in Pune on October 1, in Ahmedabad on October 4 and in Hyderabad on October 6.

Peters said, "Our India leg earlier this year was 'sold out' but I could sense from the sheer response that a lot more people could lap it up once more. I've always loved performing in India - the audiences here have some crazy enthusiasm and energy - and this time they'd be from cities I haven't performed in."

Swaroop Banerjee, COO, Zee Live, said: “Supermoon is our flagship IP for Comic and Music talents. The idea was to promote 'larger than life' acts in these genres. The first edition of the 'Deported World Tour' gave us 4 sold out arena shows in Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai with millions engaging with us on our social universe. Russell has a pulse globally that connects with everyone, closer home, let me tell you, the energy of close to 20,000 audiences was absolutely phenomenal coupled with the brands that engaged with us simply made the decision easier.

"We approached Russell for a second edition in 3 new markets and he obliged. Pune, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad will experience the Supermoon ft. Russell Peters Deported World tour early October and as an organization it gives us immense joy when our audiences engage in this manner. Under brand Supermoon we will continue to deliver our promise of truly larger than life acts in the coming season. I am grateful to Russell and Clayton for making this work, we have found true partners in Oranjuice Entertainment who closely work with us for our international formats.”

VG Jairam, Co-Founder, Fountainhead Mktg & Oranjuice Entertainment, said, “Oranjuice Entertainment is proud to partner with Zee Live to bring the best of international live entertainment talent for Indian markets. We are extremely pleased to see the positive response the first edition of Supermoon received, and all of us here are immensely excited for its phase II. Our collective effort is to deliver best of international and local live entertainment across markets in India thus creating a touring ecosystem and create value for the consumer and brand partners.”
