Charley Crockett has announced that he must, unfortunately, cancel his Australian Tour due to ill health. Love Police are extremely disappointed to deliver this news, however, it should go without saying, Charley’s health and wellbeing is paramount.
Charley had multiple surgeries recently, including open heart surgery and hernia surgery. He was advised to take 3 months off for recovery and did. Unfortunately, the surgery was delayed a few weeks and this has caused some overlap in proper time for recovery. We are happy to report Charley is recovering, however, the recovery process is going to take longer than doctors expected. Charley’s medical team has advised that Charley not do any strenuous travel, including international and multiple flight travel. Charley still has a short run of US dates on his calendar which he will be travelling by tour bus and closely monitored by his doctors.
A representative from Charley said: “This was not an easy decision for Charley to make as he loves touring, travelling and performing. The opportunity to travel internationally to Australia and perform his show is a once in a lifetime opportunity that everyone was very much looking forward to. However, we have no other option but to take the advice and recommendations of his expert medical staff and proceed with every precaution regarding Charley making a 100% recovery.”
Love Police Touring and Cooking Vinyl Australia wish Charley all the best in his recovery and hope he is back to full health as soon as possible.

Love Police are thrilled to announce the debut Australian tour by the exceptionally talented Texan singer song-writer Charley Crockett and his band.
A poor kid from south Texas whose ancestry traces back to Davy Crockett, Charley cut his teeth busking on the streets of New Orleans and the subway platforms of New York City. Today, Crockett has honed a colourful stage persona with a distinctly retro flair, complete with vintage pearl-snap shirts, high-waisted slacks and a homespun, irreverent sense of humour.
This May Crockett will embark on his highly-anticipated first Australian tour, bringing his rootsy take on Americana music to intimate venues in Melbourne, Castlemaine, Sydney and Newcastle as well as appearing at Blues on Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. Up and coming star, Sierra Ferrell, will be a special guest at all shows except Gold Coast.
