Chris and Rosie Ramsey 'beyond gutted' to postpone live show tour again
Chris and Rosie Ramsey say they are ‘beyond gutted’ as they are forced to move the live tour of their award-winning podcast for a second time.
The South Shields comedy couple were set to go on tour in May and June with the live show of their hit podcast Sh***ed. Married. Annoyed.
But the 13-date tour has been postponed a second time due to the coronavirus pandemic after the new Government made clear they wouldn’t be able to play to full capacity arenas in early summer.
The couple, who welcomed their second child Rafe into the world earlier this year, shared the news on social media and are currently working to secure new dates. It is the second time they have had to postpone the tour which was originally scheduled to go ahead in 2020.
In a statement, Chris and Rosie said: "We are beyond gutted to tell you that we have to move out S*****d, Married, Annoyed Live tour dates (again).
"It’s pretty clear we won’t be allowed to play to full capacity venues by May, so we’ve sadly got no choice.
"We are working hard to secure new dates and will keep you posted as soon as they are confirmed.
"All tickets will be valid for new dates. It’s gonna happen… just not in May and June!
"So, so sorry guys but we will see you soon!”
The couple’s podcast, which began in 2019, is all about life – relationships, marriage, parenting, annoyances and everything in between and won Best Podcast prize at the Global Awards in March last year.
Their book – also named S*****d. Married. Annoyed – rocketed to number one on the influential book sales chart when it was released in September – described as the “most accurate and comprehensive estimation of book sales in the country”.
Critically-acclaimed comedian Chris, who made it through to the semi-finals of 2019’s Strictly Come Dancing, was also due to hit the road this spring for the first leg of his rescheduled 2020 stand-up tour.
But these dates were also postponed until the first half of 2022 due to the pandemic, with hopes that dates currently scheduled for this October and November can go ahead.
