It’s been a rough week for the girls. First Paramore singer Hayley Williams was unable to finish the first show on the band’s tour on Tuesday night and then had to cancel a scheduled gig on Thursday night due to illness. Then, after Miley Cyrus struggled through her show on Tuesday night in Salt Lake City with a nasty bout of strep throat, the singer was forced to pull the plug on her Friday night show in Omaha, Nebraska.
According to a message posted on Cyrus’ Web site, due to the lingering illness, the show has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 13.
A few weeks into her Wonder World Tour , Cyrus, 16, had to stop for 15 minutes on Tuesday night’s show. She later took to her Twitter page to explain her ailment. “My throat is yelling at me to shut up. Strep is the worst thing ever,” she wrote. “Thank you, Salt Lake, for being so amazing and supportive. My body is done with me working it so hard. Off to have a very nice peaceful sleep.”
According to her tweets, dad Billy Ray and sister Noah have been keeping the singer’s spirits up until she gets better. “Nurse Noah is taking good care of me tonight. I just put on a Snuggie and ate a popsicle,” she wrote.
Though she urged Omaha fans to keep their fingers crossed that she’d make Friday’s show, it was not to be. Cyrus posted a series of updates on Wednesday and Thursday in which she was clearly laid up in bed, variously eating Spaghetti-O’s and watching “Steel Magnolias” with her dad and dissecting the finer points of “The Little Mermaid.”
The next show on Cyrus’ schedule is a Saturday night gig at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. No information on whether that show is still on was available at press time.
