Pink responds to fan backlash over cancelled shows with one subtle move on Twitter.

Much-loved singer Pink has been forced to cancel several of her Sydney shows due to illness, in a result that’s upset many fans.

Tuesday marked the third show the 38-year-old singer had to cancel after she was diagnosed and hospitalised with a gastric virus on the weekend.

Although Pink hasn’t directly spoken about the ordeal, instead relaying information through Live Nation (her touring company), she’s just made a pointed social media move that perhaps expresses exactly how she’s feeling.

The pop star ‘liked’ a tweet by an Adelaide newsreader, Melanie Usher, who defended Pink against angry fans who missed out on her Beautiful Trauma World Tour performances.

“Geez – don’t fall sick on a concert tour of Oz,” she wrote.

“A performer is not a robot and they fall sick too. Give her a break and stop complaining about two concerts which ARE going to be rescheduled.”

Since falling ill, the singer has come under some backlash when her Monday night show was cancelled an hour and a half before doors were set to open. This drew criticism from fans who had travelled considerable distances and booked accommodation specifically for the show.

It’s understood the cancelled shows are will be rescheduled. Alternate dates have yet to be put forward. There are also three more shows scheduled for her Sydney leg of her tour on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, before her Brisbane shows.

The What About Us singer was discharged from St Vincent’s Hospital on Tuesday afternoon and is set to make a decision over her Thursday performance sometime today.

Watch Pink and Kelly Clarkson perform R.E.M.’s Everybody Hurts at the 2017 AMAs.
