And fans appeared happy with Friday’s performance as many shared their reaction on social media, with some even saying they were “emotional”.

The event is being billed as a dance athon party that will save lives – with Peter also taking to the DJ seats during the show.

Peter was due to go on a major tour from April 2018 to summer 2019, but canceled it in December 2017.

The actor said on December 13, 2017, “Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.

“This unfortunately includes my upcoming standup tour, Dance for Life shows and any pending live work commitments.

“My sincere apologies. This decision was not made lightly and I am sure you will understand that my family must always come first.’

He was previously set to make a comeback with the series of Dance For Life shows in April and May 2020 to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

But the events had to be postponed in March last year due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
