informed he could either exchange or refund his tickets.
He said: "I heard about him on the radio talking about hats
and I thought he was very funny.
"Then he popped up at Canterbury and I thought I'll have a look.
I bought the tickets back in December.
"People who will have bought tickets will want to know what TV
committment he has and why it is more important than them.
"It has been rearranged for April but people will not know what
they are doing and who knows if he will have another TV
"I'm not taking the risk. I'm getting the money back. I'll find
out what TV show he is on and watch him on the box."
