Australian rockstar John Farnham has been rushed to hospital, forcing him to postpone his upcoming New Zealand shows.

The 69-year-old was scheduled to open for the Eagles in Dunedin on Saturday, before performing his own shows in Wellington and Auckland next week.

But it has now been revealed the legendary singer has been hospitalised with a severe infection after having minor surgery two weeks ago.

He is expected to make a full recovery, but doctors have advised him not to travel across the Tasman.

Both the Auckland and Wellington show have been rescheduled for later this year on November 30 (Auckland) and December 1 (Wellington).

John Farnham joined Celine Dion on stage for surprise duet of 'You're The Voice' - and it is INCREDIBLE!

Tickets for the shows will remain valid for the new dates, however, if you are unable to attend the new shows a full refund is available through

Kiwi singer Marlon Williams is now set to open for the Eagles outdoor concert at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium on Saturday.

We're wishing John a speedy recovery!
