He will announce them soon...
NME reports that Ricky Gervais has promised his fans he will announce several David Brent shows soon. Brent is Gervais' character from the original UK version of The Office. Brent was the boss and "chilled out entertainer" at Wernham Hogg.
He played his debut live show as the character last October, performing as David Brent & Foregone Conclusion. The backing band included former Razorlight member Andy Burrows. He previously brought back the character for BBC's Comic Relief and started an online series, Learn Guitar with David Brent, his first recurring role since The Office ended in 2003.
He performed twice last year at the Bloomsbury Theater in London, along with Bristol's Colston Hall. After a huge demand for tickets, he teased a show at the O2 Arena in London, writing, "Oh well, O2 next then :)".
He wrote on Twitter:
Dear UK, I will be announcing a couple more very exclusive David Brent gigs soon. Until then, enjoy this again http://t.co/gTQIlMpMMp
