Miley Cyrus Postpones Additional Tour Dates After Allergic Reaction
By Kevin Rutherford
Miley Cyrus isn’t out of the woods just yet. The string of canceled tour dates continues for the pop singer as she recovers in the hospital from an allergic reaction
According to Billboard, Cyrus has been forced to postpone tour dates in Nashville on Friday (April 18) and in Louisville Saturday.
The singer previously canceled dates Tuesday in Kansas City and Wednesday in St. Louis, as reported by Radio.com.
Cyrus posted an official statement to her Twitter today, which notes that she had been suffering from a sinus infection, for which she took medicine — Cephalexin — that eventually gave her an allergic reaction.
“This type of extreme reaction can last from five to 27 days in these types of cases,” the statement notes. “She will remain hospitalized and is under a doctor’s care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time. Miley is devastated about missing shows and possibly disappointing her fans.”
While the statement was fairly straightforward, Cyrus’ responses on Twitter were a bit less eloquent. The singer lashed out at those reporting other stories– including rumors of her pregnancy. “So many ignorant stories out there no one is reading the official statement and these dumb asses are scaring my fans,” she tweeted.

“Shut the f–k up and let me heal,” she added in a later tweet.
The affected tour dates will be rescheduled. After the Louisville show, her next scheduled engagements include Philadelphia on April 21-22.
