Aside from the praise there were also fans asking about the Belfast gig which was planned to take place on 11 and 12 April, but was postponed by Russell due to personal reasons. These dates are now said to be rescheduled for 29 and 30 August 2023.

Russell kicked-off the huge tour on 16 March at the Hexagon venue in Reading, before spending multiple nights performing in Southend, Leicester, Cambridge, London and Manchester. As he is still mid-tour, he has yet to entertain sold-out crowds in Portsmouth, Brighton, Aberdeen and York.
