And people didn’t believe she was sick!
Pink was sent to the hospital earlier today in Sydney, Australia, and diagnosed with a gastric virus. The singer had been battling some kind of cold for the past week or so. She is currently down under for a lengthy leg of her Beautiful Trauma World Tour.
Last week, she postponed a concert on Aug. 3 at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia. Somehow, she performed the Aug. 4 show, but now it has been confirmed that tonight’s show (Aug. 6) will also be postponed.
Live Nation posted the following on their social media channels.
When she postponed her concert last week, she was seen at the beach with her daughter Willow. Paparazzi captured the moment and blogs published stories about her enjoying herself at Byron Bay despite canceling a show for the following day. This outraged fans. And, it also outraged Pink.
The singer took to Instagram to address this.
I don’t need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it. I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life. This break in Byron has been scheduled since 2017, as a way to get outside the hotel and the winter and have some time with my children. I’ve already been sick twice (kids as well)on this Australian tour, but the first time we got sick, I was able to push through. This time, what these parasite paparazzi don’t show you, is two doctor visits in Byron on two consecutive days, antibiotics, steroids, Vick’s, nose spray, throat spray, more steroids, NyQuil, a screaming baby in the middle of the night, every night, while mama gives him warm baths and tells her daughter everything is fine. You can think whatever you want, it’s your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life. I have never fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling. I mother with everything I have whilst handling all the rest. The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world. I’m doing the absolute best I can, and you can believe it or not. What they don’t show you in this picture is me drinking water and lying down while my friends try to entertain my 7 year old who is asking me why these creepy men are surrounding us and pacing back and forth and taking pictures of her every move. I will see everyone tomorrow whether I’m better or not, and the postponed show will be rescheduled. As I said, I’m sorry to the real fans who this situation has affected. Onwards and upwards.
Like she mentioned, Pink has a pretty good record when it comes to touring. The only show she has ever canceled that comes to mind is one in Birmingham during her previous world tour.
I hope she feels better soon and gets back to kicking ass on stage!
