The start of the new Urbanus Tour is literally a happy accident. Because it is directly related to the injury of comedian Jack Vermeer (70). He is currently recovering from surgery on his broken shoulder after a fall in the park.
However, Vermeire had big plans: He’ll be touring this spring with the new hall show “70+”, with his children Julie and Maxime and their partners. Father and children Vermeer have often been recording TikTok videos together since the Corona crisis, and this way they noticed that they wanted to give something to the public together.
But due to his rehab, Vermeer has to cancel his entire tour this spring, including auditions. It’s impossible to be on stage for 35 shows from March to May. The tour had already been postponed due to Corona, so postponing it again wasn’t an immediate option either. Vermeer hopes to be able to podium again after the summer.
That’s why Urbanus is taking some game dates with its new show. The two comedians announced it together at a press conference in Keerbergen, Vermeire’s main port. “Arban and I know each other very well, it’s not working for me at the moment, it’s that way,” Vermeer told VTM Nieuws.
And that’s how Urbanus tackles performance dates on busy theater schedules. Anyone with a ticket to the Jacques Vermeire show will be able to exchange that ticket for a seat on the Urbanus show at various venues. Asking for a refund is also an option. All ticket holders will be contacted in person.
