Is Olivia Rodrigo hinting at a 2024 Guts World tour stop in Australia? Details explored following Promo tour cancellation statement
Olivia Rodrigo’s visit to Australia for a promo Live fan Q&A event on September 22, 2023, has been canceled. The event would have featured a meet and greet with the artist in what was described as a once-in-a-lifetime event.
The cancellation of the promo event was announced with a general press statement by Universal Music Australia, which stated:
“We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances Olivia Rodrigo’s trip to Australia has been cancelled. Unfortunately, the fan Q&A event on Friday, September 22, will no longer be going ahead. Olivia is devastated that she won’t be able to make it. However she’s so excited to see her Australian Livies in 2024.”
Olivia Rodrigo is on a roll with her new album GUTS
While no further information from Olivia Rodrigo or her label has been revealed, the singer’s popularity is rising with her second studio album, GUTS, currently charting as the chart-topper on the Australian album charts.
The singles from the album are also chart-toppers on the Australian singles charts. This popularity is similar to the market the singer’s debut album, Sour, had in the region, with its nine-week chart-topping streak.
The singer, in her original announcement statement for the now-canceled tour, stated that she was looking forward to seeing her fans, known as Livies, in Australia:
“I can’t wait to get down to Australia. I’ve never been, and I’m so excited to meet everyone. I’ll see you soon Livies!”
