Gareth Gates Hair Tour Cancelled

UPDATE 28th February:  Tour has been cancelled. The producers have just issued the following statement:

"The producers of Hair are sorry to announce that unfortunately the forthcoming UK tour will not be going ahead. Despite the best efforts of all involved to keep the production moving forward, it has become apparent that certain criteria could not be met and regrettably the show will not now open in Liverpool as originally planned. The producers would like to apologise to the many fans of this iconic show who had been greatly excited by its planned revival."

The UK tour of Hair starring Gareth Gates is under threat as its  producers have filed for bankruptcy.

It is due to open at the Liverpool Empire on 10th April and tour until 21st July.  The fifteen theatres who have booked the tour have been informed that a last minute rescue may come from a UK producer, who I suspect might be Bill Kenwright.
