Official Press Release

After 18 months of lockdown in the UK, Rick is delighted to finally be able to announce the long-delayed follow-up to 2019's sell-out The Grumpy Old Rock Star Tour - The Even Grumpier Old Rock Star Tour!

The 26 14 city tour will kick-off on Wednesday, October 13th in Natick, MA at The Center for Arts and continue through November.

All event start times are subject to change, please check with each venue as the date approaches.

If you purchase a Meet and Greet package, your ticket agency receipt will acknowledge the purchase but you might not receive physical tickets for that part of the event. You will be contacted by email 5-7 days before the event with timings for the day and the meet location, so make sure to check your junk mail folders just in case it gets marked as spam by your email provider. The meets are often many hours before the event start time so make your travel arrangements accordingly.

For all ticketing enquiries or issues, please contact the ticketing platform's customer service - the website cannot answer individual ticketing questions.

Covid precautions (vaccine requirements, negative test results etc.) may be in place at venues on this tour which are, of course, out of the control of Rick and the tour promoter and we strongly advise that you check with the venue directly nearer the date.

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."
