Sir Rod Stewart, a British pop musician, postponed his show in Geelong, southwest of Melbourne, owing to sickness, leaving fans in suspense.

The announcement was made by the A Day on the Green organizers on Saturday around noon in advance of the event this afternoon.

The 78-year-old singer-songwriter, whose six UK chart-topping singles include Baby Jane and Maggie May, was scheduled to perform at the A Day on the Green festival in Geelong’s Mt. Duneed Estate.

Since then, Rod Stewart has apologized on social media for the cancellation, blaming it on a viral virus for the last-minute notice.

A statement stated, “Live Nation and Roundhouse Entertainment regret to announce that tonight’s performance by Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens at Mt. Duneed Estate, Geelong will not go ahead, due to illness.

We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience to ticket holders.

A further announcement regarding the concert arrangements will be made early next week.

He also posted, “I’m absolutely downhearted that I’m disappointing my fans who bought tickets to A Day on the Green. Late this morning I was advised that I have a viral infection and my throat is too irritated to sing. I’m only human and sometimes get sick just like you do.”

The announcement comes after Sir Rod’s earlier postponed until March and April 2022 and then canceled Australian tour, which was originally scheduled to include eight dates across the country in October and November 2020, performing both arenas and a day on the green vineyard dates.
