Placebo Frontman Brian Molko Collapses On Stage
August 12, 2009
Brian Molko, vocalist and guitarist of Placebo, collapsed on stage whilst the band were playing a set on Sunday at Japan's 'Summer Sonic' festival.
A virus and jet lag were blamed by the band in a statement that was published earlier on their website.
“We have undertaken a gruelling and intensive schedule over the last few months and the last couple of weeks alone played 5 countries in 9 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”, the statement read.
At the end of the month the band are scheduled to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals.
The news of Molko's fall follows the reports that Jet frontman Nic Cester also collapsed over the weekend at a performance in London.
