Rod Stewart pulled the plug on his concert in Australia Saturday … because of some mysterious illness.

The 78-year-old rock star took to Twitter to make the announcement hours before he was to hit the stage at his Geelong show as part of his tour through the land Down Under with Cyndi Lauper and Jon Stevens.

Lauper and Stevens also announced the cancellation on their social media pages.

Stewart posted an official statement, which read, “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.”

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

Stewart went on to explain:

“Hello my friends.

“I’m absolutely downhearted that I’m disappointing my fans who bought tickets to A Day On The Green.

“Late this morning I was advised that I have a viral infection and my throat was too irritated to sing.

“I’m only human and sometimes get sick just like you do.

“My greatest joy is performing for you, so I’m doing everything I can to get on the mend and back on stage!”

His Instagram was flooded with well wishes.
