Rod Stewart Cancelled His Concert in Australia This Weekend Amid Viral Infection!
Rod Stewart cancelled a live concert this weekend on his The Hits tour due to illness.
Rod Stewart has said that he and Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens had to cancel their concert in Australia because he had a “viral infection.”
“Hello, my friends,” the British rock star said in a statement on Instagram on Saturday. “I'm so sad that my fans who bought tickets to A Day On The Green will be let down.”
“I found out late this morning that I have a viral infection, and my throat was too sore to sing,” Stewart, 78, said. “I'm just a person like you, and I get sick sometimes just like you do.
“Performing for you is what I love most, so I'm doing everything I can to get better and get back on stage!”
Fans from all over the world left nice messages in Stewart's Instagram comments.
Sir Roderick Stewart was going to be at the A Day on the Green festival at Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, on March 18. The opening acts will be Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens. But on Saturday afternoon, the three performers posted a statement saying that the concert was cancelled.
“Live Nation and Roundhouse Entertainment are sorry to say that Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper, and Jon Stevens will not be performing tonight, March 18, 2023, at Mt. Duneed Estate in Geelong due to illness. We're sorry that ticket holders will be disappointed and have trouble.”

Even though there was a good reason for cancelling the show, ticket holders who had travelled far to see the concert were upset. “We flew from Hobart to see Rod. How will we get back now? Devo! “We got these tickets for my mom as a gift because it's her dream,” someone wrote on the page for A Day on the Green.
“I hope their insurance pays for our hotel and day off work. Those who bought tickets won't get an email about it. “We got an email at 1:52 p.m., which was 63 minutes before the bus was supposed to pick us up from the hotel,” said another.
We hope Rod Stewart gets better quickly and that he'll be back on stage soon. Keep an eye out for more news and information.
About Rod Stewart
The full name of Rod Stewart is Roderick David Stewart. He was born on January 10, 1945, in London, England. His soulful, raspy voice has been heard on rock and pop hits since the late 1960s. Stewart became famous all over the world after his groundbreaking album Every Picture Tells a Story sold a lot of copies.
Stewart is best known as a solo artist, but he first got noticed and became successful as a member of a number of popular groups.
How did Rod Stewart Rise to Fame?
Early on, he was interested in folk music and rhythm and blues. In the mid-1960s, he played in two less well-known London bands, Steampacket and Shotgun Express, before joining the Jeff Beck Group with influential guitarist Jeff Beck and future Rolling Stone Ron Wood.
Stewart worked with Beck for two albums before Wood, who had been fired by Beck, convinced him to join the Faces. This was in 1969. The band, which used to be called the Small Faces and included Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan, and Kenney Jones, played bluesy rock that Stewart liked because he had always liked rhythm and blues.
The Faces were one of Britain's most popular live bands in the early 1970s, and their 1971 album A Nod's as Good as a Wink…to a Blind Horse is still very well known. Stewart, however, didn't want to be limited by the group format, so he also had a solo career while he was in the Faces (1969–75).
