Molko Collapses In Japan
PLACEBO frontman BRIAN MOLKO sparked fears for his health on Sunday (09Aug09) when he collapsed onstage at a concert in Tokyo, Japan.
The British band was in the middle of their set when the singer fell ill.
But Molko has made a quick recovery, and is blaming the incident on the group's gruelling tour schedule.
A statement issued by the band reads, "It is always incredibly disappointing when a show cannot take place for any reason, particularly on this occasion due to Brian being unwell, as we have looked forward for such a long time to these shows in Japan.
"We have undertaken a gruelling and intensive schedule over the last few months and the last couple of weeks alone played five countries in nine days. Brian picked up a virus which coupled with jet lag and exhaustion caused his collapse on stage. Thanks to prompt and professional care, Brian is recovering well."
