Where is Pete Davidson? Troubled Ex “SNL” Comedian Raises Concern About Health After Suddenly Canceling All Shows Through January 6th


Pete Davidson is MIA.

The ex “SNL” comedian has cancelled all his comedy shows through the beginning of next year.

Davidson abruptly cancelled his show at the Beacon Theater with an email to ticket holders.

“Please be advised that the Pete Davidson performances scheduled to take place at the Beacon Theatre on Fri, Dec 22 and Sat, Dec 23 have been canceled,” the email said. Refunds are automatic.

All the rest of Davidson’s shows were cancelled as well including cities like Nashville, San Antonio, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Louisville, and Milwaukee.

Is it drugs? Crohn’s disease? Mental health? It could be one or all three. Davidson has battled with all these issues for years, periodically checking into rehab. He’s a gifted comedian with real demons, starting with the death of his father in 9-11 when Pete was very young.

The cancellations are a headache for the promoters and theaters, but worth it if it means Davidson is taking care of himself.

Ticketmaster is still selling tickets starting January 6th at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. Everything before that will be refunded.

Davidson has a Netflix schedule set for January 9th, but it’s unclear if it was already taped.
