Gloucester rugby star and Gatcombe Park Estate resident Mike Tindall is preparing to tackle life on the road as a debut tour for his hit podcast has just been announced.

The podcast – The Good, The Bad And The Rugby, with fellow former England player James Haskell - is the focus of a live tour.

Since launching last summer, it has gained more than three million listeners and 20 million-plus viewers online.

It is now going live in 15 cities across the UK and Ireland, with the nearest one being at the Forum, Bath on May 31.

Joining James and Mike will be their podcast co-host, former Sky Sports rugby presenter Alex Payne.

The trio will take to the stage to recreate the trademark banter they have on air as The Good (Alex), The Bad (James) And The Rugby (Mike), share tales from on and off the pitch.

Mike said: “Since launching The Good, The Bad And The Rugby podcast, we’ve all become even closer, through the stories we’ve shared ourselves and the stories our guests have shared.

“Now we can’t wait to get on the road, with more tales from our rugby lives, and to meet our listeners – and maybe hear a few stories from them.”

Episodes have featured glimpses into each of the men’s lives – earlier this year, Mike announced his son’s dramatic birth on the bathroom floor, alongside guest appearances from some of the rugby world’s biggest stars.

James added: “We have so much fun creating each episode, getting stuck into a whole range of topics for 90 minutes. Mike and I have enjoyed touring life with England – and now we’ve got our own tour… It’s going to be great!”

And Alex said: “It’s a pleasure to bring James and Mike to the table each week, when we sit and put the world to rights – and what better way to celebrate that, than by taking it out on tour?”

The Good, The Bad And The Rugby – LIVE promises to recreate the magic of the podcast’s weekly episodes, which feature rugby chat as well as wider sporting and pop-culture talking points.

Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring for promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “The podcast was a must-listen hit for sports fans in 2020, and with season two currently making a similar impact, we are excited to launch this tour.”
