Peter Kay cancels entire 2018/19 tour - including two Belfast dates

News Image

Kay announced last month that he would be embarking on a Stand Up Tour of the United Kingdom including a number of sold out dates at the Manchester Arena.

Bolton comedian Peter Kay has cancelled every date on his forthcoming tour - his first for eight years - because of "unforeseen family circumstances".

It's due to what's being termed "Unforeseen family circumstances".

Kay initially announced 26 dates across 2018 and 2019, kicking off in Birmingham in April 2018, but soon tripled the line-up to more than 80 shows, including 16 nights in Manchester.

The news includes the cancellation of the anticipated Dance for Life and his other live commitments and television shows in the pipeline.

In it, Kay expressed his "sincerest apologies".

'I've always comes endeavored to protect my family's privacy from the media. "I hope that the media and the public will continue to respect our privacy at this time".

Peter Kay has announced he will no longer be performing in Ireland in 2019. "Once again, I'm very sorry". With 1.2 million people in attendance, it broke the Guinness World Record for the biggest selling comedy tour of all time.

Speaking previously of his return to the stage, he said: "I really miss it".

"As terrifying as it is, when it works there's nothing more fun and exciting".

He also pledged his support to the charity by auctioning off tickets to a one-off intimate performance in Blackpool next summer, raising a total of £633,225.

There was a huge scramble to get tickets for his eight First Direct Arena shows in October 2018, and extra dates were added to the original schedule.
