The Red Hot Chili Peppers were forced to cancel their show in Los Angeles Saturday night when lead singer Anthony Kiedis was taken to hospital.
The band was set to headline KROQ’s annual Weenie Roast when the frontman began to experience extreme stomach pains, a radio station rep told Billboard.
The 53-year-old was taken to hospital in ambulance.
The rest of the band took to the stage Saturday night to let fans know why they wouldn’t be playing the concert.
“We live to rock,” bassist Flea told the crowd. “But unfortunately there’s a medical thing that happened and we needed to deal with it so we are unable to play tonight. We will be playing for you very soon.
“We will play for you like the feral animals that we are and we are so sorry.”
The band drummer, Chad Smith, sent out a tweet, wishing his “brother Anthony” a speedy recovery.
It remains unknown what caused Kiedis’ stomach troubles.
