Pink has opened up about her battle with dehydration and gastric virus which led to her hospitalization and show cancellation.
According to Today, the pop star apologized to fans and opened up about her frustrations after having to miss Monday’s “Beautiful Trauma” tour stop in Sydney due to what event promoter Live Nation said in a statement was dehydration and a gastric virus.
“On Monday, we were 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 was discharged from St. Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney on Monday night and is currently resting and making sure to get plenty of fluids.
“A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front a microphone and sing,” she wrote. “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, 38, says she will be recovered in time for her next show on Saturday in Sydney. She is spending her recovery time with her two children and husband Carey Hart.
Last week she clapped back at an Australian tabloid criticizing her for canceling a show in Byron Bay on Aug. 3 by insinuating she was not sick and was instead frolicking on the beach with her family.
