However, when news hit that he would no longer be belting out his classics as planned, one report suggested his no-show is down to low ticket sales.

According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, tickets didn’t sell as well as expected, despite the heavy promotion and publicity to plug the tour.

It reports that ticketing websites have suspended sales and told fans that there are ‘scheduling difficulties’ involved.

But according to Pete’s reps, it is simply a case of bad timing.

‘Pete’s tour has been postponed until 2018 due to filming commitments being behind schedule in the UK,’ his team told¬†The Mirror.

There is no news yet though as to when Pete’s tour dates will be rescheduled for.
