"I promise you I will play another show as soon as I can. Australia has been absolutely beautiful and kind to me on my first visit here. There is nothing I would rather do than play tonight and get rowdy with you all, but I am forced to do what's best for my health.

"I truly hope you can understand. From the bottom of my heart, I am sincerely sorry. Trust me, no one is as bummed as I am."
