Relax, try to breathe. This is all fine. Everything’s going to be alright. There is absolutely no need to panic.

We think.

Oh god.

Megan Mullally has had to withdraw from the entire planned tour of Australia and New Zealand, the she was set to embark upon with long-term beau/greatest man alive Nick Offerman this summer.

The Summer of 69: No Apostrophe tour was set to begin in Sydney on January 28th, running through mid Feb and taking in Hobart, PerthAdelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and a pair of shows in New Zealand.

However, promoting company Live Nation has announced that due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, Mullally will no longer be able to take part in the tour.

Instead, the tour will be replaced with Offerman’s solo show Full Bush. All dates, times, and venues remain unchanged, and all tickets already sold will be honoured at the new show.

Live Nation explained Mullally’s absence in a short statement issued today:

“Megan Mullally is no longer able to tour early next year as she starts a major film production overlapping directly with her Australian dates.”

Offerman’s Full Bush features a veritable smorgasbord of cautionary tales, tunes, and tips for prosperity.” 

“From lessons in manliness, to high-spirited sing alongs, to the occasional bout with nudity, Offerman’s stage performances are inspirational experiences for those lucky enough to attend. Don’t miss out on a humorous evening with one of the top comics in the US.”

And for those of you who, much like everyone in our office, had their hearts leap into their throats at even the sheer thought of minor trouble within the world’s living embodiment of relationship goals, it’s ok. It’s fine. Everything’s going to be ok. Ron Swanson himself said so.

“I am throbbing with anticipation to taste my first Koala! We will miss Megan’s beauty and talent, but I will do my best to bring a hearty serving of chuckles and beefy musk down under.”

Bloody hell. Please don’t ever scare us like that again, Nick & Megan.

Full dates and details for the updated tour can be found at the Live Nation website.
