Miley Cyrus has postponed the remaining U.S. dates for her Bangerz tour after falling ill from an allergic reaction to antibiotics. The Associated Press reports that seven shows have been rescheduled, and the tour will resume on August 1st with a stop in Uniondale, New York.
Cyrus was hospitalized on April 15th and placed on medical rest by her doctors, forcing her to cancel shows in Kansas City and St. Louis, Us Weekly reports. She had canceled her Charlotte, North Carolina show the previous week because of what was reported at the time to be a flu-like illness.
"Miley was suffering from a sinus infection during her tour," said an official statement that Cyrus posted to Twitter on Thursday. "She was prescribed the antibiotic Cephalexin which she's now suffered an allergic reaction to. This type of extreme reaction can last from five to 27 days in these types of cases. 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."
(Cyrus posted the note along with the message, "Shut the fuck up & let me heal. Stop scaring my family, friends, & fans.")
Cyrus is still scheduled to kick off the European leg of her tour on May 2nd in Amsterdam. Her rescheduled U.S. tour dates will run between August 1st and August 14th, with two additional shows in Pittsburgh and Chicago.
