Miley Cyrus is tweeting from a hospital bed as the pop star had to cancel her “Bangerz” tour concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri due to illness.
Miley Cyrus was unable to perform Tuesday night because of an unfortunate allergic reaction to antibiotics she’d been taking, explains KMBC, as Cyrus has been battling an undisclosed malady since last week.
Whether or not the singer will reschedule the concert at a later date is still unknown, but ticketholders will be able to get refunds at the point-of-purchase. If tickets were purchased online or over the phone, those individuals should receive an automatic refund.
In a tweet, the 21-year-old who was recouping in her hospital bed said “Kansas, I promise I’m as (heartbroken) as you are. I wanted so badly 2 be there 2 night. Not being with y’all makes me feel (explative) than I already do.”
In addition the patient tweeted, “Mr. Octopussy & some amazing Drs are taking good care of me.” The tweet included a photo of her in a hospital bed wearing a gown, holding a green octopus toy in front of her face.

Though the specifics regarding the young entertainer’s severe allergic reaction were not fully disclosed, allergies to antibiotics are fairly common – especially to penicillin.
Penicillin is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics, one of many beta lactams. Others include: Penicillin G, nafcillin, oxacillin, cloxacillin and dicloxacillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, carbenicillin, ticarcillin, and piperacillin.
Anyone who is allergic to penicillin or one of the aforementioned sub-classes should presume to be allergic to all penicillin variants, and should avoid them unless they have been specifically evaluated by a medical professional.
