The ‘What About Us’ singer also announced that she will postpone Thursday’s scheduled performance to recover from a gastric virus, and return to the stage on Saturday.
However, the announcement brings some bad news for her Brisbane fans, as one of her shows up north will also need to be moved to accommodate her new Sydney concerts.
Pink’s rescheduled Sydney dates are…
August 3 will now be on August 24
August 6 will now be on September 17
August 7 will now be on September 18
August 9 will now be on September 19
The Brisbane show scheduled for August 23 will now take place on August 22.
Fans will not be issued with new tickets, and anybody who cannot attend can request a full refund.
Hi beautiful Sydney people. First, I want to say thank you to all of the kind people out there for your well wishes for my speedy recovery. 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 that way. I was discharged from hospital last night, and am following doctors orders of liquids and rest. A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front a microphone and sing. I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total shit show of awesomeness (no pun intended). 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. 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. Not too much, though. I’ll try to control the smiling. 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. I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many many years. All of my love. Pink I also want to thank the amazing doctors and nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital for taking such good care of me and getting me home to my kids.
