Pink has been forced to postpone her Sydney tour dates after being admitted to hospital.

The American singer/songwriter has been hospitalised twice since Sunday, (5 August) according to Live Nation.

After checking in on Sunday and being discharged soon after, Pink was readmitted yesterday (6 August) and diagnosed with dehydration and a gastric virus, which forced the Secrets songstress to cancel Monday night’s performance.

Live Nation’s statement said: “Pink will remain in hospital overnight, continuing her treatment and recovery.”

It is the second performance she has had to postpone so far, after having to cancel her 4 August show.

“It is with great frustration that I bring you this news,” she tweeted at the time. “Friday’s show will be postponed. I was hoping a couple of days of rest would help me kick this sick, but not at the speed I was hoping for.

“I appreciate your well wishes and understanding + I’m sorry.”

Pink was set to play another five shows in Sydney over the next week, but it’s not yet known whether she will be well enough to perform.

Over the weekend, Pink slammed the press for claiming she was “hitting the beach” instead of focusing on her recovery.

In a lengthy Instagram post, she explained to fans: “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.

“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.

“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 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.

Last week, Pink unveiled the video for her sensual dance-pop anthem, Secrets, which features some of the sexiest choreography we’ve seen all year.

In the video, the star and her tour dancers showcase some frisky dance moves with a same-sex partner against a graffiti backdrop.

It’s the fourth official single from the iconic performer’s seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma, following What About Us, the title track and Whatever You Want.

Upon release, Beautiful Trauma topped the charts in the UK, US, Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Ireland and New Zealand, and has sold over two million copies worldwide. Not bad in the age of streaming, eh?
