Rod Stewart cancels performance in Australia due to infection
After Rod Stewart had to cancel appearances in Australia last year, a virus infection is now thwarting his plans again.
The British musician Rod Stewart (78) has canceled a planned appearance in Australia because of a virus infection. Stewart (“Maggie May”) wrote on Twitter that he was very sad to have to disappoint his fans who bought tickets for the performance in Geelong.
“Late in the morning I found out that I had a viral infection and my throat is too sore to sing,” the Brit tweeted. “I’m only human too and sometimes I get sick.” He’s working hard to get back on stage.
In addition to the show in Geelong, six more concerts with Stewart are in until April 2nd Australia planned. Because of the Covid pandemic, the artist had to cancel performances in Australia last year. His last album “The Tears of Hercules” (2021) reached number five in the British charts and was temporarily number 17 in the German charts.
