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.
“I was discharged from hospital last night, and am following doctors orders of liquids and rest,” Pink wrote. “A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front of a microphone and sing,” she added. “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.”
Pink defended herself in an Instagram post last week after she was photographed with her kids at a beach in Byron Bay after canceling Saturday’s concert. She referenced the beach photos in her new post. “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,” the singer said.
Pink’s Australian tour is scheduled to run through August 26th. Live Nation later said Pink would return to Sydney after the New Zealand leg of her tour to perform most of the postponed concerts. The new Sydney show dates are August 24th and September 17-19.
