Delta Goodrem reveals why she has postponed her Australian tour just weeks before she was due on stage

Delta Goodrem was due on stage to start her Australian tour in just a matter of weeks. 

But on Friday, the songstress announced that she has postponed the original dates until September, because she does not feel it is safe to hold a concert amid the pandemic just yet. 

In an Instagram post, Delta wrote: ‘Performing live shows and being together in the one room with my fans means so much to me.

‘Since we announced the tour, my priority has always been the safety and health of fans, crew and venue staff and we remain committed to ensuring the indoor concert experience is the safest and absolute best it can be.

‘We’ve given this a tremendous amount of thought and whilst we are incredibly optimistic of how things are improving, out of an abundance of caution and to be certain of the best experience for fans coming to the shows and all of the staff and crew working on the tour, we’ve made the difficult decision to move the tour to September and October.

‘We are greatly encouraged by the improvement in the national touring outlook and whilst I would love to be touring in April, we believe that waiting an extra few months will put our hearts and minds beyond doubt.’ 

The Born to Try singer added: ‘I am overwhelmed with the support of people coming to the shows, so hang on to your tickets. 

‘I cannot wait to bring this tour to life and for it to be a huge celebratory night of fun, music, love and light.’
