Pink‘s had a rough go during her gigantic Australian tour, and things have taken another turn for the worse.

The superstar performer just announced tomorrow’s show in Sydney has been cancelled, marking the fourth show she’s called off in the space of a week due to illness.

Taking to Instagram, the singer detailed the events leading up to the cancellation of her scheduled Monday and Tuesday night shows at the Qudos Bank Arena.

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.

Pink said the doctor’s orders mean her next performance will be her scheduled Saturday August 11 gig.

She also took a stab at paparazzi for hounding her while recuperating, saying “I might even smile. Not too much, though. I’ll try to control the smiling.”

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.

Touring company Live Nation said it will release a statement shortly about the rescheduled shows.

The Beautiful Trauma tour still has a fair few dates left, including consecutive appearances in Brisbane and Melbourne. Best of luck to the absolute trooper – even the idea of chucking on that many shows makes us tired.
