Bad news, Pink fans in Montreal: the singer has just postponed her Friday concert due to the flu.

Pink announced on Twitter Thursday that she is “stripped down” for the postponement of the show at the Bell Centre, but said that they “absolutely.”

“I am grateful for your desire to come and with us. Our whole family is battling this terrible virus / flu for two weeks now, and I have fought my way through these shows, because the delay sucks,” she wrote.

“I’m really sorry and know that I have done everything I could to prevent this,” she added. “Carey’s been home with the flu, while I and the kids battle this virus. I wish that there is someone who is going through this healing vibes and a big hug.”

Carey Hart is Pink’s husband of more than a decade. The couple has a six-year-old daughter named Willow, and a one-year-old son, Jameson.

This is not the first time that the singer and songwriter has battled the flu this year. Pink announced she was fighting the virus, just before she sang “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl LII in January.

“Try to Practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, the owner of this song. And now, my chance has finally come,” she wrote in an Instagram post ahead of the big game. “And it just so happens that this opportunity comes as I have two small petri dish of children who literally cough IN MY MOUTH and rubbing their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff, I swear it!”

While some fans expressed disappointment on Pink’s recent cancellation, others wished the star a “speedy recovery.”

“The money and the show is not important… for the care of your family and your health…. everything else can wait,” a Twitter user wrote.

“Unfortunately, even rock stars get sick, and sometimes you can’t do anything about it, but get well,” one man said.

A number of fans agreed, that they were going to “love and support” Pink no matter what.

Pink, who is currently on tour for her album “Beautiful Trauma” is scheduled to perform at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on March 25.
