Four upcoming Top Gear Live shows that were scheduled in Norway later this month have now been postponed. The events, which are held around the world and are presented by Clarkson alongside his co-hosts, help make the Top Gear franchise a $75 million brand for the BBC. Almost 20,000 tickets had been sold for the dates in Norway.
A spokesman for the live shows said that the rearranged dates would be announced at a later time.
Clarkson last week launched into a rant against the BBC at a charity event, calling the broadcaster “f—ing bastards” who had “f—ed themselves” along with their hit motoring show. However, in his Sunday Times column March 22, he said that the comments had been made “in jest” to help boost bids on the auctioning of a race around the Top Gear track.
“By being brief, controversial and a bit sweary, I woke the room up, and the auction prize I was offering … raised £100,000,” he wrote.
