P!nk's Message

To all of the fans/friends/people/ticket buyers from the Birmingham show that I had to cancel: and I say "had" because I had absolutely no choice in the matter, no control over the circumstances, and physically could not get my sick ass on stage, because of an ear infection and chest infection all at the same time, and even a doctor told me I could not go on stage wether I wanted to or not: To all of you:

I sincerely apologize, AGAIN, for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Sincerely. I actually rode by the venue, and saw some of you in line, and there was not a fucking thing I could do about any of it. Except cry. My heart was absolutely broken.

I am getting a lot of hate mail from some of you, not all. But to those of you that expect and feel entitled to perfection; Have a look at my track record- please- in general- for tours past. I have an incredible record. I do not cancel and I do not take it for granted how much trouble people go to- from spending hard earned money they don't have, to travel expenses and time and planning, etc. I take NOnE of it for granted, EVER. That's why I never phone it in. I go on stage and pour my fucking heart and body out on that stage. I ruin my body and my vocal chords, make myself sicker, come hell or high water. I don't lip sync, I don't rely on dancers to do my work for me. I try to put the best show on that I can, that any human being can, and I don't stop until I know you're happy.

I am a human being, therefore I am able to catch illness. It is beyond my control- and I can't apologize for that. And you know what I've been performing through the last week? ROTA virus. Look it up. I challenge any one of you to do what I do while sick with that. You couldn't do it.

The fact that I don't get the benefit of the doubt from you saddens me. There is no way I can make up this date. There isn't a way. And for any of you that believe in me, please know we did everything we could to try to make it happen. Everything. It's a logistical nightmare that is again, out of my control.

And guess what? I might actually get sick again on this tour. Can you imagine it? How dare I even think that? I have a two year old who is building her immune system by getting sick all over the place. And the fact that I even went on tour while being a full time mom is a miracle in itself.

The next time I schedule dates- ill have to say to myself- "if, God forbid I have to cancel one show, those fans will turn on me like rabid dogs and question the moral fabric of my character."

For the loyal and understanding fans- I am so so sorry if I've hurt you in any way. For the rest of you- Kindly kiss my entire almost back to healthy ass.

Love always, Alecia the human also known as p!nk

P!nk, I saw you in Louisville, KY. You were awesome and you give 200%. I've seen many great artist such as Tina Turner which I've seen twice. No one can begin to hold a candle to you. I have purchased gold tickets for your Indianapolis show in Nov. I can hardly wait. I would be terribly disapointed if you would have to cancel but I also know it would only be because you simply weren't able. You give so much, I can't imagine how you can possibly hold up. Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery. A true fan, which I have been since your first cd, ( and I'm an old grandmother of 4) will always love you and stand behind you and wish you the best. Take care and take care of your family. The fans will come and go but family is forever. Much love & best wishes.

Pink you are human and NO ONE should be that mad about you not being able to perform. I have never been able to come and see your concerts, But I have always wanted too. I can honestly say that if you had to cancel your concert and I was the one going to it even thou it would be my first time, I would be disappointed but understand. You are a momma and you are a person. Your life is crazy and you work all the time. Things happen and we that really love you and understand that you are NOT A ROBOT, get that. I am hoping that you are feeling better and SO WHAT to those that don't understand. You need to be healthy for your daughter and for yourself. that is what I think is most important. I would just be devistated if something happened to you because you pushed yourself too much just to please the fans. Take care my dear. I look forward to the day that I will sometime get to see one of your concerts in person!
