The tour, which was scheduled to begin later this month (hitting venues in Sydney, Melbourne, Geelong, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth), will now take place in 2019, after promoter Wayne Kalil fell ill. While rescheduled 2019 dates are yet to be announced, Kalil promises they will be confirmed “in the coming weeks”.
“My health is starting to improve and I have been given the green light by my doctors,” he says.
“I am committed to rescheduling the tour for early 2019 and am already routing the schedule. I have been in contact with the band and we are working together to make it happen.”
In a statement, Lez Zeppelin’s Steph Paynes says the band “deeply regret” having to postpone the tour at the last minute.
“We are relieved that all is now well with our promoter and thrilled to announce that we are currently rescheduling what promises to be an incredible, whirlwind rock and roll adventure,” she says.
“It has been a dream of ours for many years to play for the amazing, world-class music fans of Australia. There is no better match for the powerful and passionate music of Led Zeppelin. Its been a long time coming, but we promise it will be worth the wait. We look forward to bringing a whole lotta love – and more – to you in early 2019.”
Organisers say 2018 ticket-holders can contact their point of purchase for refunds.
