With just four shows left on his national tour, Dean Lewis has been forced to withdraw from Queensland's One Hot Night festival due to illness.

The Sydney singer was forced to postpone a show in Melbourne earlier this week after falling ill, but is expected to push through the remaining gigs of his tour.

Replacing Lewis at One Hot Night is Aussie heavyweight Pete Murray who joins the Rockhampton event on 29 December alongside names such as Busby Marou and Ian Moss. 

“We received news early this week that Dean Lewis may not be able to travel to Rockhampton and perform due to illness, we immediately thought of our great mate, Pete Murray," Thomas Busby said.

"For him to answer the SOS and agree to play One Hot Night with us is fantastic”.

Murray added, "I love the folk at Rocky and I love Busy Marou and I know I'm going to love playing One Hot Night. 

"This will be cracking night and probably the gig of the year!"
