BERLIN (Reuters) - Pink said she was fine after being rushed to a hospital when the harness supposed to lift her into the air at a gig in Nuremberg instead sent her shooting off stage into a barrier.

Known for acrobatic stunts, the 30-year old singer posted a message on Twitter saying she was "seriously sore" and apologizing to fans for breaking off the concert on Thursday.

"Didn't get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade," Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, wrote on Twitter. "I hope it at least looked cool!!!"

Pink said she was released from hospital after a medical examination showed no bones had been broken and there was no fluid in her lungs.

A hospital in Nuremberg confirmed Pink had checked in there but declined to give further details.

Organizers said her open air concert in Salem, near Lake Constance, on Friday evening was still scheduled to go ahead.

"Pink is in good health in Salem and looking forward to the show this evening," the organisers said in a statement.

Pink's Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour throughout Europe is due to end later this month.
