P!nk has taken to her Instagram account to give fans an update on the situation surrounding her suspended Sydney shows, confirming that TOMORROW NIGHT’S (Thursday 9th August) show will be postponed and her next performance will be on Saturday night.
This comes after the ‘Raise Your Glass’ singer was forced to cancel three of her Sydney shows due to illness.
Live Nation later confirmed that the Grammy Award winning singer had been suffering from dehydration and was admitted to hospital on Sunday night. After being discharged she was later readmitted to hospital on Monday diagnosed with a gastric virus.
In the long winded post made on P!nk’s Instagram account today, she first started by thanking her fans for being so understanding and sending her well wishes.
“Hi beautiful Sydney people,” she wrote. “First I want to say thank you to all of the kind people out there for your well wishes for my speedy recovery.”
While most fans have been supportive of the singer, some fans were left frustrated on Monday night after the singer’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’ show was cancelled just moments before the doors were due to open.
In the Instagram post, P!nk went on to give further insight into her health problems and explain why she had to cancel the show at the last minute.
“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 in that way,” the post continued.
P!nk is known to be one incredible powerhouse of a performer with her shows always proving to be physically demanding. She explained that due to this, she has been forced to take some time to herself so that she can get better. As a result, tomorrow night’s show at Qudos Bank Arena has also been postponed.
“I need to be physically healthy and well in order to perform this show,” the post said. “Our next show will be Saturday, and until then I will be drinking green tea, and spending time with my kids.”
Anyone who has tickets to to one of the cancelled shows has been assured that they will be notified when the shows are rescheduled. P!nk told her fans in the long caption on Instagram that this announcement will come later today.
“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.”
Finally, P!nk took this moment as another opportunity to take a cheeky little jab at the Aussie paparazzi who last weekend slammed her for cancelling her concert and spending the day on the beach at Byron Bay.
“That’s a warning to paparazzi, you might actually see me walking upright outside 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.”
Our love goes out to P!nk as she fights off the last of this nasty bug and gets ready for another killer show on Saturday!
As for those rescheduled shows, stay tuned we’ll let you know as soon as they’re announced!
