The British musician, 27, had been due to play the city's HBF Stadium on 30 July (16), the final date of the Australian leg of his tour.

However the gig was cancelled by bosses at the venue and gig promoters Secret Sounds.

A statement posted on the venue's website read, “Secret Sounds and Venueswest have advised that James Blake at HBF Stadium on 30 July 2016 won’t be going ahead due to unforeseen circumstances.”

According to editors at Australia's Eastern Reporter newspaper, staff at Secret Sounds said a scheduling change meant Blake had to leave Australia earlier than he had initially planned.

The critically acclaimed musician, who has hit the bigtime after appearing on Beyonce's acclaimed Lemonade album, has had a busy summer touring schedule having played a number of events across Europe, including Britain's Glastonbury festival over the weekend (24-26Jun16), before jetting off to Australia and Japan.

However he has a two week break after the Perth gig before he travels to Wisconsin on 12 August (16) to begin a trek across the U.S.

Fans of the Retrograde singer voiced their frustration on Facebook: “Pretty disappointing that this has been cancelled with absolutely no explanation or apology to ticket holders,” wrote Bec Elliott. While another fan appeared to hint that a lack of ticket sales was the real issue, "Can’t expect to sell tickets when your only promo is a Facebook event” wrote Alex Hindley.

James' gig on Saturday (25Jun16) at Glastonbury saw him play at the festival at the same time as Adele was headlining the Pyramid stage.

According to Britain's NME magazine, recognising the devotion of his fans the Limit To Your Love singer said, “We’re so happy that you’ve turned up in such force, and we’re glad we could be here for you.”
