Lots of kerfluffle about Top Gear, but why hasn't Jeremy Clarkson been interviewed? Or May, or Hammonds?

The UK newspaper the Telegraph reports that Richard and James did not sign to renew their contract with BBC2 for Top Gear, and so they are free agents. Jeremy is fired.

So why hasn't anyone gotten any statement from Jeremy in weeks?

His monthly column ran in this past months Top Gear magazine, but I can't find an online version of it, and it was written long before he punched johnny-never-heard-of-you.

Oddly, all 3 are contracted to do Top Gear Live events with a the BBC Worldwide and Brand Events consortium called Sub Zero.

The problem is that since Top Gear has fired Jeremy, the events can't be branded and marketing the Top Gear show, but have already sold out 4 shows this weekend in Norway.

Top Gear Live has a string of international events lined up this year, with the next under threat potentially Sydney in April and Johannesburg in June. The UK stops on the tour – Belfast in May, Sheffield in June and London’s O2 in November – have been guaranteed by UK promoter Live Nation.

Top Gear Live makes more than £11m in revenues annually and this year’s global tour is understood to have sold more than 100,000 tickets.

Newsflash:
The worldwide tour, previously known as Top Gear Live and fronted by Clarkson alongside co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, will be renamed Clarkson, Hammond and May Live. The shows have been stripped of Top Gear and BBC branding.
