LEGENDARY singer Ronan Keating has apologised to fans in Southend for having to cancel his upcoming show as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 44-year-old performer, famed for his time in Boyzone and his subsequent solo career, was due to play at Cliffs Pavilion on both January 28 and February 7.

The gigs had already been rescheduled on multiple occasions and had originally been due to take place in the summer of 2020 but were pulled due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The star, who now presents the One Show on BBC One, has now announced his Twenty Twenty will again have to be postponed.


In a statement issued on his social media platforms Ronan said: “I’m gutted that we we’re in this situation again as I’m so desperate to get back on stage in front of everyone who’s bought and held on to their tickets for my tour. 

Let’s all hope and pray that this summer sees the back of the pandemic once and for all and I promise you then that the wait will have been worthwhile for us all. Please stay safe and let’s all take care of each other. 

“God bless, Ronan"

His tour manager also confirmed the reasons behind the difficult decision.

They said: “With the ongoing challenges of the pandemic across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland we have taken the difficult decision to re-schedule Ronan’s ‘Twenty Twenty’ tour to later this Summer. 

“We fully appreciate the frustration and inconvenience that this may cause but delivering a safe and welcoming live environment for all, at each and every venue, must remain our priority.

"Tickets will remain valid so please hold on to them as revised dates will be announced shortly."
