Pink Admitted to Hospital Due to Illness


Pink has been forced to postpone a third Sydney concert, scheduled to go ahead tonight, after being readmitted to hospital on Monday with a gastric virus.

The US singer called off her Monday night concert just hours before it was to go ahead and has this morning called off another show tonight.

“On medical advice P!NK’s performance scheduled for tonight (Tuesday, August 7) at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena has been postponed,” a statement from her Australian tour promoter reads.

“Pink was admitted to St. Vincents Hospital in Sydney on Sunday night, suffering from dehydration. She was treated and discharged.

“She was readmitted to hospital on Monday and diagnosed with a gastric virus.

“On medical advice Pink remained in hospital overnight, continuing her treatment and recovery. She will be reassessed by her doctors today.”

Pink is currently scheduled to perform at Qudos Bank Arena on Thursday night, however the promoter has advised that “a further announcement will be made when an update becomes available”.

It is the third Sydney show that has had to be postponed after Pink also called off a performance last Friday.

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.
