Jeremy Clarkson to appear with Richard Hammond and James May on Top Gear Live shows


Jeremy Clarkson will appear on rebranded Top Gear Live shows with his fellow presenters Richard Hammond and James May.

A deal has been done to fulfill a series of live shows that were planned before Jeremy Clarkson was dropped from the show for hitting Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon.

The shows will be stripped of all BBC branding and content and will be called Clarkson, Hammond and May Live.

The first live show will take place in Belfast on May 22.

BBC said it had agreed the tour could continue “so as to not disappoint fans”.Top Gear Live Jeremy Clarkson

A spokesman called it “a sensible approach in the circumstances”.

Thousands of people around the world had already bought tickets.

A spokesman for Brand Events, who are co-producing the shows, said they wanted to thank “ticket holders for their continued patience”.

“The fans are the most important people to Jeremy, Richard and James so we’re delighted to be able to say <<we’re still coming>>. We’re sure it’ll be something you won’t want to miss.”

Top Gear Live shows will take place in venues around the world including Australia, Norway, South Africa and the UK.

Live shows that were due to take place in Stavanger, Norway earlier this month have been re-scheduled to June 20 and 21.

A Top Gear Festival planned for Sydney in April will instead become an indoor arena show staged in both Melbourne on July 18-19 and Sydney on July 25 -26.

Top Gear Live show dates are:

  • May 22 – 24 – Belfast
  • June 5 – 7 – Sheffield
  • June 13 – 14 – South Africa
  • June 20-21 – Norway
  • November 28 – 29 – London O2
