    Katy should get an IV, drink a glass of water and get over it! People have open heart surgery and are back to work 2 days later. Postponing a Friday concert in the middle of summer to a Sunday night when kids are back at school (I’ll have two that are back at college and won’t be able to attend the show now) isn’t a fair exchange. I’m tired of these “celebrities” who make millions and are total prima donas. I know there are going to be alot of folks who disagree with me. It’s now 9am and she can’t make a concert in 10 hours? I’d rather have her sit on a chair and sing rather than have two teens who are totally disappointed that they can’t see her show now.

      “If you had tickets for tonight’s show, they will be honored.” Learn to read, the tickets are still good.

        Its not about the tickets being honored. Its about tickets for a Friday night now being honored on a Sunday night….kids are back to school then. Kinda tough to get up at 6am after a concert the night before.
        Try using your common sense.

    Nooooooooooooooo… It Cost me a lot to get Day Off at work today… 😥

    Why is everyone hating on Katy for being sick??? Try having a heart and being more understanding. Its NOT a big deal if she has to reschedule. I’d rather see her being healthy than doing a concert being sick and not performing to expectations. Grow up people!
