British rocker Pete Doherty has been hospitalised in France, according to reports.
Fans were filing into the Theatre de Verdure in Nice, where the Babyshambles star was scheduled to perform when news spread that he had been admitted to hospital.
Concertgoers were told the show would be rescheduled at a later date.
One fan tells WENN his devotees feared the worst, with speculation that Doherty's ongoing drug problems had claimed his life.
She says, "Some fans were crying. It was terrible."
Others, who had travelled great distances to see the star in concert, were furious.
The fan adds, "Three young Italian girls were really mad. They drove four hours from Italy to see Pete Doherty and couldn't believe the gig was cancelled. One of them was really furious and shouted, 'I can't believe he did that! It cost us time and money to come all the way from Italy.'"
There were no further details about Doherty's hospitalisation as WENN went to press. It is not known if the health scare was drug related.
