EARLIER @ August 6, 5.00 PM | Ongoing illness has forced pop star P!nk to postpone another of her Sydney shows.

P!nk was due to play at Qudos Bank Arena tonight as part of her Beautiful Trauma Tour but has been ordered to take another night off.

Promoters Live Nation released a statement this afternoon confirming the news.

“On medical advice P!NK’s performance scheduled for this evening (August 6) at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena has been postponed.”

“A further announcement will be made in due course.”

It comes shortly after she was forced to cancel her first Sydney show last Friday because of a respiratory infection.

The star stayed in Byron Bay to recover but copped criticism after she was photographed relaxing at the beach.

P!nk fired back on Instagram saying she’d been sick twice already while on tour.

“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.”

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.
