Comedian Jason Byrne forced to cancel tour dates due to a heart condition

Comedian Jason Byrne has been forced to cancel some of his tour dates, as well as a gig in Vicar Street, due to a heart condition.

The Irish comedian posted a video on social media detailing what happened.


“I went to A&E… got loads of tests and eventually they found three blockages so around early October, we’re going to have to get a couple of stents thrown in,” Byrne said.

“Before anybody jumps on, no it was not the vaccine. I had… heart professors all around me telling me exactly what was wrong with me, so my heart hasn’t enlarged, there’s no blood clots, it’s actually hereditary.”

Byrne took the opportunity to tell people to get their hearts checked by a Doctor.


“I’m fit and I’m underweight and I don’t smoke and I don’t barely ever drink, so I plead to anybody out there – just go and get yourself checked because you don’t even know that you’ll have any clogging up in your arteries,” he said.

He is hoping to be back on tour at the start of November.
