The Not Quite As Grumpy As Last Xmas Tour

During 2020, Rick's Even Grumpier Old Christmas Shows were postponed to this year.

Ticket holders for the postponed 2020 shows can retain their tickets for the 2021 date, or refunds will be available from the point of purchase.

Commenting on the shows Rick said "It's so difficult to imagine how live music is going to be in the future, but I have to believe that there will be sensible and workable answers to enable us all to enjoy concerts, the theatre and other social events. So, with my positive hat on, I'm looking forward to a new 'Even Grumpier Christmas Show' to hopefully play my part in putting smiles back on all our faces and prepare us for a healthier and continually caring 2021."
