BOSTON (AP) _ Singer Mariah Carey’s show will go on, but not for another week.

Carey remained hospitalized in fair condition Wednesday at Massachusetts General Hospital after being treated for food poisoning.

She fell ill after eating raw oysters in Atlanta, where she performed Saturday. She began to feel worse after flying to Boston, and was hospitalized.

Carey, 30, was treated for dehydration and other side effects of food poisoning, said hospital spokeswoman Georgia Peirce. Carey was expected to be released within a couple of days.

A concert set for Tuesday night at Boston’s FleetCenter was canceled. The show was rescheduled for April 13.
