Pink reveals the ‘medical emergency’ that forced her to cancel shows

Pink reveals the ‘medical emergency’ that forced her to cancel shows

Pink has had to cancel multiple shows after a doctor advised her not to perform

Pink has offered up more details about the 'medical emergency' which has forced her to cancel gigs in the US and Canada.

The cancellations came after the 44-year-old pop star kicked off her Trustfall Tour in the US earlier this month, following a series of dates that formed part of her Summer Carnival 2023 shows.

Pink is set to perform in Vancouver, Canada; Denver, Colorado and Kansas City, Missouri in the coming days, but she sparked concern among fans ahead of a gig in Tacoma, Washington, earlier this week as she announced it would not be going ahead.

In a statement shared on Instagram, Pink announced that she had to postpone two shows in the city due to 'family medical issues' which required her 'immediate attention'.

"I send my sincerest apologies, love and health to all," Pink added alongside the post.

The singer didn't share any further details about the medical issues at the time, but more details came to light on Thursday (19 October) as Pink announced the cancellation of the two shows in Vancouver.

She revealed she had been advised not to perform by a doctor, after she had been diagnosed with a respiratory infection.

Saying she was 'deeply sorry' to share the news, Pink assured that the ticket organizer was working to reschedule the shows.

"I am very much looking forward to performing in Vancouver and putting on an incredible show for everyone," Pink wrote in her statement.

"In the meantime, I wish everyone good health and am sending lots of love."

While fans in Tacoma and Vancouver are no doubt disappointed at having to wait to see Pink perform live, the singer has been flooded with kind words since she announced the initial cancellation.

Pink has been advised by a doctor not to perform.

"Shows can be rescheduled, your loyal fans will understand because we [love] you! Family and health are more important," one supportive fan wrote.

The news of Pink's respiratory infection comes just weeks after she was forced to cancel a show in Dallas, Texas, due to a 'bad sinus infection'.

"The doctor has advised me not to perform tonight," she told fans, adding: "You know I do everything in my power to never miss a show."

Fans who were supposed to be attending the gig in Dallas were assured that the show had already been rearranged for 26 November.

New dates for the four nights in Tacoma and Vancouver are yet to be announced.
