Olivia Rodrigo fans have expressed their outrage on X, formerly Twitter, after the singer cancelled her first ever Australian promotional tour.
The American star, 20, was due to arrive Down Under in a matter of days to promote her second album, Guts.
Fans who wanted to meet Olivia during her visit had to pre-order her new album and would be in the running to win a ticket.
But a Universal Music Australia spokesperson has confirmed the singer’s scheduled tour and highly anticipated fan Q&A session has been cancelled.
Several fans have expressed their disappointment on social media, with one writing: ‘I’ve bought like seven copies of Guts, hotel [bookings] and plane tickets just in the hopes of seeing her.’

‘I was convinced I was meeting her because there were so many chances, but they just ripped that away from us,’ a second said.
‘I got waitlisted for GUTS tour from my, my mum’s and my dad’s account…No words can explain but I am extremely sad,’ another wrote.
One person took aim at the short e-mail to fans outlining she wouldn’t be coming for the planned visit.
‘The Universal Music Group email was so short and pathetic. It really was like ”wait never mind, she can’t come, scratch that, cya bye”,’ another wrote.
The singer was booked for a host of media interviews to promote her second album, which have all been cancelled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.
‘Olivia is devastated that she won’t be able to make it, however she’s so excited to see her Australian Livies in 2024,’ a Universal Music Australia spokesperson said.

Her debut album Sour was released in 2021 and spent eight weeks at number one on the ARIA chart.
She recently took to Instagram to celebrate Guts reaching number one on the US Billboard album chart and hinted at feeling overwhelmed by its success.
The raven-haired beauty posted a cheeky selfie of herself sticking her tongue out and captioned it: ‘This is how I feel right now.’
Earlier this month, it was reported Olivia was finally heading to Australia following her record-breaking success Down Under.
