Pop superstar Pink on Wednesday postponed a fourth Sydney show but vowed to be back on stage Saturday following a stomach virus. Her Beautiful Trauma world tour’s first concert in Sydney was scheduled for last Friday, but she canceled that show on doctor’s orders. The 38-year-
old battled through a Saturday night show.
Promoter Live Nation said Pink was admitted to a hospital on Sunday suffering from dehydration and was discharged. But she was readmitted and diagnosed with a gastric virus hours before her Monday concert was due to begin.
She was discharged from the hospital the next day, but Tuesday night’s concert was canceled. Pink said Thursday’s concert would be the fourth and last cancellation.
“Our next show will be Saturday, and until then I will be drinking green tea and spending time with my kids,” Pink posted on Instagram.
“My sincere apologies to any of the ticket holders that this has affected,” she said, adding that the rescheduled dates will be announced later Wednesday.
“Thank you for your patience, compassion and support. I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many, many years,” she said.
She thanked her supporters as well as staff at inner-city Saint Vincent’s Hospital for their care.
Pink’s Australian tour is scheduled from July 4 to Aug. 26. She last toured Australia in 2013, when she performed 46 shows as part of her “Truth About Love” world tour.
Hi beautiful Sydney people. First, I want to say thank you to all of the kind people out there for your well wishes for my speedy recovery. On Monday, we were absolutely planning on going ahead with the show, and about 20 minutes before I left for soundcheck, I was rushed to the hospital, in excruciating pain. That was the reason for the late cancellation. It was out of anyone’s control, and of course, wasn’t planned that way. I was discharged from hospital last night, and am following doctors orders of liquids and rest. A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front a microphone and sing. I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total shit show of awesomeness (no pun intended). Therefore, I need to be physically healthy and well in order to perform this show. I think all of you deserve the full show and me at my best. Our next show will be Saturday, and until then I will be drinking green tea, and spending time with my kids. That’s a warning to paparazzi, you might actually see me walking upright outside of my hotel room cage with two little children, and another warning: I might even smile. Not too much, though. I’ll try to control the smiling. My sincere apologies to any of the ticket holders that this has affected, the rescheduled dates will be announced today. Thank you for your patience, compassion, and support. I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many many years. All of my love. Pink I also want to thank the amazing doctors and nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital for taking such good care of me and getting me home to my kids.
