“Ticket refunds can be sought from the authorised outlet where purchased.”

Four Irish dates of an upcoming stage show celebrating the work of Michael Jackson have been cancelled.

The Michael Jackson HIStory Show was due to play four venues in May; Cork Opera House, Vicar Street Dublin, the Royal Theatre and Event Centre, Castlebar and Limerick's University Concert Hall.

However, Cork Opera House management revealed they were in talks with the show's producers, Showtime Australia over the weekend about whether or not it would go ahead.

According to Independent.ie, the whole tour has now been cancelled by Showtime Australia, stating, "Ticket refunds can be sought from the authorised outlet where purchased."

This follows the airing of a controversial documentary in which two men allege that the late singer groomed them as children.

Leaving Neverland – which aired across the UK and Ireland on Channel 4 one week ago – has also resulted in a number of radio stations claiming that they'll never play Jackson's music again. 

The makers of The Simpsons have also pulled a 1993 episode featuring the singer.

The Michael Jackson HIStory tour has received rave reviews consistently for its international performances over the past five years. 

It's billed as “a spectacular music tribute and full-scale stage production honouring the one and only King of Pop, Michael Jackson”.

As it stands, the production is scheduled to go ahead across Canada until mid-August. It is not yet known if this leg of the tour will go ahead.
