Pop singer Pink has called off a concert in Birmingham.

It's after being told by doctors she's too unwell to perform.

The American singer was due to perform at the LG Arena but has had to postpone the performance because of an inner ear and breathing infection.

People with tickets have been told to hold on to them until an announcement is made about a replacement date that can be fitted in around her world tour.

Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, thanked fans for their support on Twitter.

The singer tweeted: "With deepest regrets I had to cancel my first show of the tour tonight in Birmingham".

She added: " I have an ear and respiratory infection. I am not a person that takes cancelations lightly and I apologize to anyone who was inconvenienced by my illness."

The pop star was due to play her second gig at the venue after performing on Sunday night.

Pink

Pink has performed more than 30 shows on her The Truth About Love tour since it began in the United States in February.

She has four more dates scheduled in the UK, all at the O2 Arena in London, starting on Wednesday April 24.

Not everyone was so understanding.

PJ Andrews was on her way to Birmingham from Nottingham when she found out: "I feel sorry for her and I hope she gets well soon but I was booked into a hotel for convenience tonight".

She says it's going to prove an expensive night anyway:" I'm sat here looking at the prospect of dinner for one. My hotel room for tonight cost £139".
