Pink reschedules November Minneapolis concert over vocal issues


There's a bit of news about pop star Pink that will leave fans feeling blue.

The Star Tribune reports that Pink -- whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore -- has been forced to reschedule her Nov. 2 concert at Target Center in Minneapolis over health issues.

Live Nation said in a statement Wednesday that Pink has overworked vocal chords and had to postpone several "Truth About Love Tour" dates in the coming weeks, including shows in Minneapolis, Fargo and Milwaukee.

The concert is rescheduled for Jan. 7 at Target Center, and tickets for the Nov. 2 concert will be honored at that show.

In a statement, Live Nation said it became clear after further consultation with her doctors "that more rest is required for her to fully recover from inflamed vocal chords and laryngitis."

Pink, who also performs acrobatic stunts during her show, sang in Seattle Sunday and Vancouver Monday before her doctor made the recommendation.

The Hollywood Reporter said Pink's struggles with her vocal chords began last week when she called off her Thursday show in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Friday show in Denver.

The Target Center concert in January will be Pink's second stop in the Twin Cities in the past year.

In March, the performer dazzled critics and fans with her concert at Xcel Energy Center.
