Why was the World Tour Mebourne cancelled?
Following on from the decision of Formula 1 and the FIA, with the support of the Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGPC) to cancel all Formula 1 activity for the Australian Grand Prix, World Tour’s show on Saturday 14th March with Robbie Williams is cancelled.
The concert would have been located inside Lakeside Stadium within the Grand Prix race track at Albert Park.
