“My dear friends, once again I feel we’ve all been cheated by this evil disease, so it is with great regret that I announce my shows for 2022 have had to be cancelled,” Stewart said.

“My thoughts are with all your families at this difficult time as we come out of the joyous and hopefully safe holiday season and I look forward to returning to Australia as soon as the health situation permits.

“I’m absolutely gutted with disappointment and when I do eventually get there we‘ll have the party to end all parties. Guaranteed!”

At the very top of his game, with 50 years behind him as a solo performer, Stewart has followed a triumphant stadium tour this UK summer with one of his biggest UK tours ever, with live performances running through November and December of 2019. In addition, he has also toured the USA, with highlights including headlining a series of shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas as part of a multi-year residency and adding a third sold-out Hollywood Bowl concert in LA for a landmark reunion set with his former bandmate Jeff Beck.
