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.”
Geez – don’t fall sick on a concert tour of Oz. First we love @pink then we turn on her for cancelling two shows due to illness. 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.
