EastEnders star Brian Conley forced to cancel live gig

EastEnders actor Brian Conley has been forced to cancel a gig a day before the performance.

The actor and comedian is currently on the road with Brian Conley: The 3rd Farewell Tour, and it was meant to stop at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley tonight (Saturday, June 15). However, he took to Instagram yesterday to inform fans it had been cancelled, with a replacement date confirmation.

"Right, this is a very important announcement," he said.

"Now some of you may be aware that I'm doing a tour. Brian Conley's third farewell tour to date. It's very funny...

"I'm disappointed because tomorrow I was meant to be in Bromley and, due to things that are totally out of our control, we can't do it.

"So the management there have asked me to read this out. 'Due to essential venue maintenance, we are unfortunately having to postpone the show,' and they are going to move it to October 19. 'The venue will contact all ticket holders about the new date.'

"So if you haven't been to see the tour, then hard luck because it's sold out. Anyway, apologies from me and I'll see you on the 19th."

Although this current tour is sold out, fans will still be able to see Brian on stage later this year and early into next, but in a different kind of show.

He'll be in the pantomime Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the Bristol Hippodrome in December and January.

The actor's EastEnders character Rocky Cotton departed Albert Square at the end of last year when Kathy forced him to turn himself in for starting the fire at her café, although Brian teased that Rocky could return to deal with some unfinished business with Kathy and The Six.

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer, where most episodes drop early at 6am ahead of their TV broadcast.
