Russell Brand’s Live Tour “Bipolarisation” Postponed Amidst Sexual Assault Allegations
Popular comedian and actor Russell Brand has postponed his highly anticipated live tour, “Bipolarisation.” The first show affected is scheduled at the Theatre Royal Windsor, and the venue released a statement on behalf of the tour promoters, expressing their regret but acknowledging the understanding of fans.
This comes after serious allegations of rape and sexual assault against Brand.
Brand recently performed to a standing ovation at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, just hours after the accusations were made public by reputable sources such as The Times, Sunday Times, and Channel 4.
Before these reports, Brand vehemently denied all claims to his YouTube channel, asserting that his relationships were consensual.
London’s Metropolitan Police have confirmed receiving a report of a sexual assault alleged to have occurred in 2003. The brand was also expected to host a live stream on the online video platform Rumble but it did not appear.
The claims against Brand have prompted the BBC and his employer at the time, Banijay, to launch an investigation into the allegations.
Furthermore, his publishing deal with Pan Macmillan imprint Bluebird has been suspended.
The description of Brand’s “Bipolarisation” show promises a thought-provoking experience that explores rules, rule-breaking, democracy, and freedom.
The show actively engages the audience by polling them on various topics.
These recent events have overshadowed Brand’s career as his fans anxiously await further developments.
