PJ Proby tour cancelled following sick comments about underage girls

Published

on

80-YEAR-OLD PJ Probey has cancelled his 20-night goodbye tour, following his sick comments about underage girls.

The popstar had his shows cancelled, including those at the Lyric Theatre in Carmarthen, after an interview emerged of him speaking about how he wanted to marry a girl around the age of 12.

He said: “I won’t marry a girl I can’t raise from age 12, 13, 14 … I like it that they’re young and fresh-looking and don’t come with baggage – nobody’s messed with their heart and broken it.”

Proby was due to appear at the Lyric Theatre in King Street on June 6, but bosses at theatres all over the UK have now cancelled his show following the comments.

The American star also said that he had not been in a relationship for 22 years because he is infact attracted to children, and that his ideal date could land not him, but the agency in prison, if he used a dating app.

He also said: “They’re still in school so I can have a hand in their education and make sure their grades are all right, make sure the way they think about religion is all right, and what is and isn’t proper.

“I never dated young girls. I married every one I went out with. My first wife, Marianne Adams, was 16. My second, Judy Howard, was 17. Then I married a 21-year-old girl from Blackpool named Dulcie Taylor. My marriages lasted no longer than three years.”

He has also said that he thought of Jimmy Saville as a close friend, as well as infamous publicist, Max Clifford, who was sent to prison in 2014 for a string of sexual offences against girls and young women. He died whilst in prison.

A statement from Carmarthenshire Theatres said: “Following recent press articles in national newspapers and the serious nature of those articles concerning PJ Proby, we have taken the decision to cancel the forthcoming show at the Lyric in Carmarthen scheduled on June 6.

“The Box Office will be contacting customers to offer refunds.”

Proby’s tour was due to start on May 3, however pressure is mounting from the public toward the local councils and theatres across the UK to put a stop to his tour. He was due to perform at venues in Chesterfield, Lowestoft, Clackton On Sea and Hunstanon, before heading to Whitley Bay, Morcambe, New Brighton, Hastings, Horsham, Stafford, Peterborough, Dunstable and Ilkley, with the final few dates ending up in Dudley, Crewe and Carmarthen.

WALES & West Utilities will shortly begin work to upgrade gas pipes in Llandeilo.

The £123,000 investment scheme, which is essential to keep the gas flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses, will begin in New Road on 21 November. This section of work will be complete before Christmas and Wales & West Utilities will return to the town next year to undertake further work in the Crescent Road area. Barring any engineering difficulties, work in the town will be complete by the end of February next year.

Wales & West Utilities Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work. He said: “Working with the Council, we have planned this work to accommodate the needs of the town.

“While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Llandeilo. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.

“We know that working in areas like this is not ideal, but it really is essential to make sure we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future. We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site throughout the project to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible while keeping disruption to a minimum.

“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.”

Our Customer Service Team is ready to take your call if you have any questions about our work. You can contact them on freephone 0800 912 2999.
