The Jack & Diane singer announced the news via his website but did not explain why the trek has been pushed back, simply giving fans a list of new tour dates and venues.

The seven-date tour was due to kick off in February (16) but it has been moved by four months. It will now start on 14 June (16) in Perth and conclude in Brisbane on 26 June (16).

Singer Jewel was set to be a support act on the original tour, but it is not known if she will remain on the bill for the new dates.
