The 38-year-old battled through a night show on 4 August. Promoter Live Nation tweeted that Pink was admitted to a hospital on 5 August suffering from dehydration and was discharged. But she was readmitted and diagnosed with a gastric virus hours before her concert on 6 August

Live Nation said Tuesday that Tuesday night’s show would not go ahead based on medical advice. “Pink remained in hospital overnight, continuing her treatment and recovery. She will be reassessed by her doctors today,” Live Nation said in a statement.

The three cancelled shows are expected to be rescheduled. Pink’s Australian tour is scheduled from July 4 to Aug. 26.
