Updated 31st March 9pm: Latest statement from Top Gear Live available on this link - show goes ahead as planned with all 3 presenters Clarkson, Hammond & May.
The ‘Clarkson, Hammond and May Live’ tour is set to electrify audiences in Belfast, Sheffield and London as the motoring mayhem all kicks off at The Belfast Odyssey on May 22nd.
Staged in association with Live Nation, this high octane arena tour is fronted by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond and will feature a mix of beautiful cars, breath-taking stunts as well as all the irreverent humour that fans know and love from the trio.
Background to the event: Previous to these events the team behind Clarkson, Hammond and May Live were running similar live shows which were titled Top Gear Live however further to an incident - which lead to the BBC not renewing Clarkson’s contract - an agreement was made between BBC Worldwide and Brand Events allowing the tour to continue under the new name but without BBC Top Gear branding or content.
Creative Director Rowland French said : ‘this agreement with BBC Worldwide is great news for fans of what was Top Gear Live, as it allows us to continue using the hugely popular live show elements created for the UK Tour. Rest assured anyone coming to the show will still get all of the things they know and love from the presenters, and all of the spectacular action sequences the production has become famous for.’
Fans of Clarkson, Hammond and May will be able to enjoy an action packed 90-minute arena show with new, never seen before sequences, as well as all of the supercars, stunts, fire and tyre smoke you’d expect from the three biggest car presenters in the world.
Other highlights include the world’s largest ‘Cage of Death’, where seven motorcyclists use centrifugal force to circle the inside of a giant globe. Fans will also be treated to a real visual spectacular in the shape of a new driving sequence featuring two custom built BMW M3s both completely covered in over 600 metres of LEDs – a collaboration with LED performance company, Feeding the Fish.
