The planned theatre tour based on BBC TV show Top of the Pops has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.
Top of the Pops Live was due to tour the UK this autumn until spring 2013, beginning at the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne and visiting other venues including Woking’s New Victoria Theatre, the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton and Liverpool Empire Theatre.
It was being produced by Derek Nicol and Paul Walden for Flying Entertainment, in association with BBC Worldwide, and directed by Gary Lloyd.
In a statement issued today, Derek Nicol, Flying Entertainment’s joint managing director, said: “Ticket sales have so far been disappointing and we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the tour. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and wish to reassure anyone who has purchased a ticket that they can obtain a full refund from the point of purchase.”
