Top Gear tour dates get postponed

Live dates for the Top Gear tour have been postponed due in the wake of the Jeremy Clarkson punching scandal.

Four shows were due to take place in Stavanger, Norway, on March 27 and 28, but have now been postponed amid the uncertainty surrounding the Jeremy Clarkson investigation – these shows will be rearranged.

The rest of the tour will run as scheduled.

According to Radio Times, more than 20,000 of the 26,000 tickets available for the Norway dates have been sold.

“Top Gear Live regrets to inform ticket holders for next week’s shows in Stavanger, Norway that we will be postponing all four performances, with rescheduled dates for later this year to be confirmed within the next fortnight,” a statement reads.

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this will cause fans and we will endeavour to contact all ticket holders directly to inform them of the change of dates. At present, all other Top Gear Live dates will run as scheduled.”

The BBC has completed its internal investigation into Clarkson’s suspension following a “fracas” with a producer, with the full report due next week.
