    Miley Cyrus has postponed her upcoming Philadelphia performance at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday due to an on-going illness.

    Cyrus' camp made the announcement on Friday evening through a Comcast-Specator spokesperson. (Comcast is the parent company of NBC10 and Comcast-Spectacor.)

    The 21-year-old pop star has been hospitalized after suffering a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotic cephalexin. She was taking the antibiotic to treat a sinus infection, according to a spokesperson.

    Cyrus had already cancelled performances of her "Bangerz" tour in Nashville, Tenn., Louisville, Ky., St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo. and Charlotte, N.C. The rest of her U.S. tour dates were also postponed on Friday.

    The rescheduled date for the Philadelphia show is set for Saturday, Aug. 2,  the singer's reps said.

    This is the second time the concert date was moved. Cyrus was set to perform on Tuesday, but the Philadelphia Flyers' Stanley Cup Playoff game against the New York Rangers bumped the show to a day earlier.
