Peter Kay Cancels Long Awaited Tour
Peter Kay has cancelled his 100-date tour due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’, including his seven dates at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.
The comedian was to play nine cities across the UK, including Newcastle. The 44-year-old asked for his privacy at this time.
He issued a statement saying: “Due to unforeseen family circumstances I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all my upcoming work projects. This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance For Life shows and any outstanding work commitments.
“My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.
“I’ve always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media. I hope that the media and public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again I’m very sorry.”
The tour was announced earlier this year with all of the dates selling out almost immediately after they went on sale.
The Metro Radio Arena has said that customers for Peter Kay’s Live Arena Tour and Dance for Life shows will be refunded from their original point of purchase and any specific ticket queries should be directed to them.
