Jeremy Clarkson is set to appear again on stage with Richard Hammond and James May, with whom he presented the BBC’s Top Gear.
A deal has been done to fulfil a series of live shows that were planned before the presenter was dropped from the show for hitting a producer.
The gigs will be stripped of all BBC branding and content and will be called Clarkson, Hammond and May Live.
BBC Worldwide said it had agreed the tour could continue “so as to not disappoint fans”.
A spokesman called it “a sensible approach in the circumstances as thousands of people around the world had already bought tickets.
The shows will take place in venues around the world including Australia, Norway, South Africa and the UK.
Live shows that were due to take place in Stavanger, Norway earlier this month have been re-scheduled to 20 and 21 June.
A Top Gear Festival planned for Sydney in April will instead become an indoor arena show.
The live show dates are:
- 22 – 24 May – Belfast
- 5 – 7 June – Sheffield
- 13 – 14 June – South Africa
- 20-21 June – Norway
- 28 – 29 November – London O2
Clarkson was dropped by the BBC earlier this month following a “fracas” with a Top Gear producer.
There is no news yet as to whether fellow presenters James May and Richard Hammond will return to the show.
