Members of the public, who have purchased tickets for Peter Kay’s Live Arena Tour and Dance for Life shows, have been assured they will be offered a refund following the news that the British comedian has had to cancel all of his upcoming appearances.
In a statement released today, Peter said: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects."
"This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance For Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments."
"My sincerest apologies," he continued. "This decision has not been taken lightly and I'm sure you'll understand my family must always come first."
The stand-up, who was set to play Dublin's 3Arena across six dates in February 2019, expressed his regret over the circumstances, but asked the public to respect his decision.
"I've always endeavoured 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. Once again I'm very sorry," he finished.
