Has to be a pretty serious reason for him to have pulled the plug, not only on his come back tour but "all future work"

That to me, reading between the lines indicates a serious issue with him, his wife, his kid or his mum.
Hes asked for privacy in regards to his family as hes always protected them from the media spotlight. God forbid if theres a health issue thats terminal & the poor guy wants to spend as much time with that family member as possible eh

People who have booked tickets already will get refunds. The guy deserves a bit of understanding. Ive seen a lot of people whinging today over this and its not necessary imho

It sounds serious. Hopefully everything is ok.


People should get a refund. Sadly not all ticket companies will refund fees which can be sizeable on tickets.

The people who bought on ticket resale sites might get hit hard. Hopefully it's the touts that get hit.

My wife tried to get tickets and couldn't but the resale sites were selling tickets for up to £500 or more , That's ridiculous and shouldn't be allowed .....

It shouldn't but the government keeps refusing to do anything about it.

It just shows how many people have money or self control that the demand is there for vastly overpriced tickets.

I ended up with 7 tickets, got emails from both companies yesterday saying I will get full refund Inc fees within the next 10 working days, so I can't complain.

Was surprised to be getting the fees back as well, doesn't usually happen.

Companies I used were Ticketmaster and See Tickets

My Wife and I had two tickets and will get a full refund with fees as above. Sad thing is that the people who have bought them off the bay etc.. won't get a penny back as it will be refunded to the original buyer.

Best wishes to Peter and his family.
