The comedian/actress was due to arrive in Perth on Saturday and was also set to perform in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland. However, according to, she will no longer be keeping her tour dates due to illness.

To make matters worse for Australian fans, Schumer has only performed one date in the country (a show in Melbourne while she was there to promote her movie, Train Wreck) and it doesn’t seem any replacement shows have been scheduled. Promoter Live Nation stated, “Unfortunately, due to Amy Schumer’s tight schedule it is not possible to schedule replacement dates, however, we will be working to confirm a return to Australia as soon as is practical.”
