The veteran rocker said he was "gutted" to postpone a number of shows after being advised to rest by a doctor.
Update, 24th November: Two more shows have been pushed back due to Stewart's throat infection. The O2 shows on Friday November 25th and Saturday 26th have been rescheduled for 26th and 27th February respectively. Tickets are valid for the new dates or fans can apply for a full-refund.
Sir Rod, 71, was due to play at the O2 in London this evening (Nov 22), but after being hit with a throat infection he announced that the show would be moved.
Got bloody bad luck & strep throat. Rescheduling the 22/11 O2 gig for 12/12. Sorry for all the inconvenience guys. Gutted. Sir Rod xxx— Rod Stewart (@rodstewart) November 22, 2016
He had told fans that the tour will resume on November 25th after he’s had a chance to rest and recover. He also confirmed that the show planned for tonight will now take place on December 12th and that tickets for tonight will be valid for the new show.
The tour, which takes place over the next three and a half weeks, will see Stewart stop off in London, Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Nottingham, where he’ll be drawing on his incredible back catalogue as well as his newer material.
