Updated On 08 Aug, 2018 Published On

Pink went on to thank fans for their support following her hospitalization due to her battle with a  lingering illness.

The pop singer was forced to cancel her Beautiful Trauma World Tour concert in Sydney, Australia on Friday, August 3 after she fell ill, and for that, she is now sorry.

She was rushed to the hospital on Sunday, August 5 and released on the same day; Next day she was readmitted and had found that she was diagnosed with a gastric virus.

The songstress, 38, took to Instagram on Tuesday, August 8, to say thank you, apologize and give health updates to her fan followers.

 

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.

The What About Us singer, who had six scheduled performances at the Qudos Bank Arena between August 4 and August 12, further explained that the physically demanding nature of Pink's shows requires her to be in top shape, adding that it would not be fair for concertgoers to make upset.

Pink later went on to say that she would be completely fine to perform on show till Saturday and until then she would be "drinking green tea, and spending time with my kids".

She then slammed the paparazzi who snapped photos of her with her children on the beach earlier this week, mentioning that she'd canceled her show just to take the day off.
