Ailing Michael McIntyre Calls Off Sold-out Show At The Swindon Arts Centre
Comedian Michael McIntyre’s illness has forced Swindon Arts Centre to cancel his warm-up show to “Work in Progress” that was scheduled to take place Thursday night. The centre has confirmed that McIntyre, who resides at Compton Bassett, close to Calne, was ill. The Arts Centre has assured people that it will reorganize the postponed performance of Michael McIntyre. Those who are unwilling to wait will be offered refunds.
The news arrived on Wednesday evening, which made Derek Aldridge (theatre director) to announce on twitter that the comedian was unwell and he would not be able to honor the sold-out date. Aldridge also confirmed that those who had paid the admission fees of £23 would be contacted once the new date has been fixed. In conversations between McIntyre’s representatives and the theatre director, possible dates in February as well as March have been talked about.
While responding to numerous disappointed tweets received by Mr. Aldridge, he offered his apologies saying that the comedian was also disappointed for pulling out of the show. Among those who were disappointed, Sally Herron did not hide her concerns and expressed annoyance in her two tweets.
This would have been the second performance of the 38-year-old comedian at the venue in two years. He wanted to try out the new material for his Happy & Glorious tour 2015 at Swindon, where he enjoys performing to the audience. The tour will start on August 8 in Plymouth.
