Sir Rod Stewart took to Twitter and explained that the dates for his Australia and New Zealand tour have been postponed following the coronavirus pandemic. The 75-year-old crooner admitted he was “sorry” that his autumn shows will not take place until two years down the line.
In view of his 457,000 followers, Rod posted a short video as he explained the situation but assured fans he will be back to hit the stage in due course.
The Maggie May hitmaker captioned the post: “Sorry to say that The Australia and New Zealand tour of The Hits!, originally scheduled for October and November of 2020, will be rescheduled.
“BUT I’ll be there in 2022, March and April, and it’s going to be GREEEAAAAT! Hold on to your tickets!”(sic)
The legendary singer also shared a clip issuing an apology while dressed in an all-white ensemble.
Rod sported a crisp shirt tucked into a pair of shorts, which he teamed with a cream blazer.
“Hi guys, Rod Stewart here. I’m sorry to say my tour this year has been postponed,” the singer commented.
He then shouted: “But… I’ll be there in 2022 in March and April and it’s going to be great.”
Fans flooded the comment section as people urged him to stay safe.
“It’s ok Rod. I would rather you be safe than sorry. I understand. I was looking forward to your concert and yes it’s sad. But you are the first thing that you need to look after. Keep safe and keep healthy we are all praying that this will end soon so we can go to your concert again,” a fan tweeted.
Another person commented: “Was due to visit Vegas in October to see you at the Palace. New Zealand sounds like a nice alternative. Stay safe.”
“You are looking great! Stay well. Love & Hugs to you, Penny & the Family!” a third person added.
A social media user commented: “Sad but expected! Stay safe Rod and your family.”

Rod was due to take his Hits music tour to New Zealand and Australia later this year but the plans have been halted due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
The promoter said in a statement the tour can no longer go ahead “due to ongoing travel restrictions”.
Fans of the star will have to wait until 2022 for the rescheduled tour dates.
Rod has been entertaining crowds over the course of his long-standing music career.
He first came to prominence in the late 1960s with The Jeff Beck Group and then with Faces.
Embarking on a solo career, he released his first hit single in 1971.
Moving to the United States in 1975, Rod’s hit songs included 1976’s Tonight’s the Night and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?.
Following the pandemic, Rod has been retreating in his Essex home with his wife Penny and the couple’s two children; Aiden and Alastair.
