Miley Cyrus canceled her Tuesday night Bangerz Tour concert at the Sprint Center after a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics put her in the hospital.
The Sprint Center announcement, about 2 1/2 hours before the show was to start, said doctors had placed the performer on medical rest. It said refunds will be available where tickets were purchased, but those bought online or by phone will be refunded automatically.
Despite lightning communication through social media, some fans showed up hoping to see a show. Among them was a group from Neosho, Mo.
Miley Cyrus has left the city.
One of her reps tells E! News that Miley, who was hospitalized last week in Kansas City just hours before her Sprint Center show, is no longer here but is still hospitalized at another secret location.
Miley had been in the hospital somewhere in Kansas City since April 15 after suffering a serious reaction to the antibiotic Cephalexin she took for a sinus infection.
