Sir Rod Stewart has abruptly cancelled a show due to an unknown illness.

The 78-year-old Maggie May singer was set to perform in Geelong, Australia, as part of his A Day On The Green tour, which also included Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens.

He announced the news on his Instagram account on Saturday, just six hours before his scheduled performance.

“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,” the 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.”

The statement was posted with a broken heart emoji.

Cyndi Lauper posted the statement with the caption: “Reposting from Sir Rod Stewart.”

“Important announcement,” added Jon Stevens, a New Zealand singer best known for his work with Noiseworks and Jesus Christ Superstar.

It’s also unclear how the mysterious illness will impact the rest of the tour, as Sir Rod is scheduled to perform in Adelaide on Tuesday.

Sir Rod’s representative has been contacted for comment.

Earlier this month, Sir Rod vowed not to retire from performing as it’s “what the good Lord put me on this earth to do” but said he wants to do less shows.

“I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t love it,” he told New Zealand radio network Newstalk ZB.

“But I want a new challenge. I’m not retiring though. If there’s a charity show and I have to sing Maggie May and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? I’ll do it tomorrow.”

He said he was preparing to tour New Zealand in April– and revealed he takes four suitcases of clothes on the road.
