Sir Rod Stewart has cancelled his Geelong show at the Mt. Duneed Estate just hours before it was scheduled to begin due to a mystery illness.

The show is part of the British rock legend’s, 78, Australian tour with Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens.

He posted the bad news to his Instagram account on Saturday six hours before he was meant to appear on stage.

‘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,’ his statement read.

‘We apologise for the disappointment and inconvenience for ticket holders. A further announcement regarding the concert arrangements will be made early next week.’

Stewart posted the message alongside a caption which contained a broken heart emoji.

It’s not clear which of the three performers has fallen ill as they all made the same cancellation post to their Instagram pages.

Lauper, 69, posted her statement with the caption, ‘Reposting from Sir Rod Stewart,’ while Stevens, 61, simply said: ‘Important announcement.’

It is also unclear how this mystery illness will affect the rest of the tour as the trio are scheduled to play in Adelaide on Tuesday.
They will then head up to Mt Cotton in Queensland on March 25 and 26 before flying down to Sydney on March 29.

The tour will stay in New South Wales for its last two shows with one hosted in Hunter Valley on April 1 and the final to take place in Bowral on April 2.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Stewart for comment.
