Pink released from hospital, apologizes to fans for canceled Australian shows


Quinn Rooney/Getty ImagesAfter postponing scheduled Friday, Sunday and Monday concerts in Australia for health reasons, Pink says she’s been released from the hospital. 

“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,” she wrote on Instagram. “That was the reason for the late cancellation. It was out of anyone’s control, and of course, wasn’t planned that way.”

She went on to explain that since her shows are physically demanding, she cannot perform as she recovers from the gastric virus that knocked her down.

“I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total shit show of awesomeness (no pun intended),” she said. “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.”

While the rescheduled dates will be announced soon, the “Beautiful Trauma” singer said her next scheduled show is  Saturday. In the meantime, she says she’ll 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,” Pink joked. “I’ll try to control the smiling.”

Pink initially cancelled her Friday show in Sydney due to an upper respiratory infection. She performed on Saturday, but on Sunday night was treated at the hospital for dehydration and discharged.  On Monday, Pink was readmitted to the hospital with a gastric virus and remained overnight, forcing her Monday concert to be postponed.
