Peter Andre has struggled with tour as he grieves for brother Andrew

Peter Andre admits going on tour so soon after his brother Andrew‘s death from kidney cancer in December 2012 has been tough.

‘This Friday, I finish my tour in Brighton, which is nice because it’s my home town,’ Pete says.

‘I have to be honest, this tour has had its ups and downs, and there have been times when I’ve just wanted to lock myself away. 

‘But being on the road has kept me focused and the support I’ve had has been amazing.

‘Although times have been so difficult over the last month,  I think that, as a family, we’re standing tall.’

Peter will also celebrate his 40th birthday next month, but original plans to visit Vegas with all his brothers in tow have now changed since Andrew won’t be there.

‘I’m not sure what to do,’ Pete says.
