The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Tour Scrapped

A new tour of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy starring the original Tv show's lead actor Simon Jones has been axed due to poor ticket sales.

Jones, who played hapless hero Arthur Dent in the 1980s series as well as in the longrunning radio Bbc radio show, had reprised his role for a U.K. wide trek this month (Oct13), but bosses at The Radio Production Company have pulled it from the stage with immediate effect.

A statement from the team reads, "The Radio Theatre Company deeply regret to announce the immediate cancellation of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show 2013 Tour.

"Although a well-loved show, Hitchhiker's Live has been subject to the same extreme economic pressures as many productions touring the U.K. this autumn... As a result in the last 24 hours we have had no option but make the extremely hard and painful decision to stop the tour."

The story was adapted for the big screen in 2005 and starred Martin Freeman as Dent, alongside Sam Rockwell, Mos Def, and Zooey Deschanel.
