Angry fans slam social media notice canceling veteran rocker Rod Stewart’s concert three hours before show: ‘Would be nice to text ticket holders’
- A day on the grass was canceled
- Rod Stewart was ready to act
Rod Stewart’s devastated fans said they found out his concert with Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens was canceled just hours before the event was set to begin.
A Day on the Green shared a post on Facebook around 1:30pm on Friday to inform ticket holders that the long-awaited concert at the Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong had been cancelled.
The event was scheduled to start shortly after 4pm.
“Live Nation and Roundhouse Entertainment regret to announce that tonight’s performance by Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens at the Mt. Duneed Estate, Geelong will not take place due to illness,” the statement read.
We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience to ticket holders.
“A further announcement about the concert arrangements will be made early next week.”

The cancellation was announced on Facebook, and many ticket holders wondered why an email or text message was not sent to them.
Hundreds of disappointed fans flocked to the comments below the post with many questioning why the cancellation had only been shared on social media.
‘Maybe it would be nice to text ticket holders. Not everyone has Facebook,” wrote one person.
“Text this morning would have been nice before traveling from Melbourne,” said another.
‘Why hasn’t Ticketmaster sent an email to let people know? This is so frustrating that I am devastated,” a third person commented.
‘I flew in from Hobart to see Rod, how can we get back now? Devo! We bought these tickets for my mother as a gift as it is her dream,” said another.
A fifth person wrote: ‘I hope your insurance covers our accommodation and the day off. There is no email notification to ticket holders. I ended up getting an email at 1:52 pm, 63 minutes before the bus was due to pick us up at the hotel.
Another commented: ‘Why haven’t I received any notification? Facebook is not good enough, I’m already in Geelong. I drove from Melbourne this morning and paid $400 for accommodation.
Hundreds of devastated people said it was their ‘dream’ to see Rod Stewart perform (above) and were devastated. The event was canceled with only a few hours notice.
However, dozens more fans sent well wishes to the ailing performers and said they’ll still make the most of the weekend.
‘Let’s hope they recover soon. So many people who show no compassion. They are people, not robots. The fans don’t show much love,” wrote one commenter.
It’s so hot and windy that it’s probably a blessing. Now the five of us girls are going to Torquay for dinner while we’re here for a girls weekend! We hope the artists are feeling better soon,” said another.
‘Journal! I hope you feel better ASAP and the weather will be amazing for next time,” a third person wrote.
