Rapper Flo Rida, known for his infectious 2007 single Low, was due to begin his string of Australian performances in two weeks’ time.
But on Thursday, the process of refunding fans who bought tickets to his July and August concerts began after he rescheduled the dates to 2019.
MJR Presents promoter Scott Mesiti announced in a statement: ‘While it’s unfortunate that we’ve had to postpone the tour, issues outside of our control have meant that new dates were required.’

The cancellation comes after Flo Rida was removed from the line-up of a winter festival in August, after its local promoter went into liquidation.
The first ever Australian iteration of snowboarder Shaun White’s Air + Style music and snow sports festival was cancelled just weeks out from its scheduled Sydney debut.
In a statement to Music Feeds, Air + Style organisers said: ‘It is with great disappointment that we share the news that Air + Style Australia has been cancelled by the local promoter due to circumstances beyond our control.’

Flo Rida will return to Australia in January 2019, with tickets from his Melbourne and Brisbane concerts available to be refunded or transferred for the new shows.
Speaking about his upcoming trip, the artist said: ‘Looking forward to returning Down Under to party with Australian Family, it’s been too long.’
It’s unclear whether fellow rapper T-Pain, who also featured in Low, will be joining him on his whirlwind tour.
Low claimed the number one spot on the Billboard 100 charts during the summer of 2007-2008, and was featured in films Tropic Thunder and Zookeeper.
