Aussie Rocker Nic Cester from JET collapsed tonight on stage at Q The Music Club Live At Hard Rock Café as part of the worldwide promotional tour for the band’s upcoming CD, SHAKA ROCK. The singer had been unwell all day but insisted on coming to the gig and not letting fans down. JET took to the stage at 8pm GMT and performed “Rip It Up” and She’s A Genius” before Nic passed out. Nic got up on his feet and jokingly told the audience he had Swine Flu before collapsing for a second time. Nic was walked off stage by the band’s tour management leaving Cam, Chris and Mark to soldier on to perform 3 more songs – “Holiday,” “Beat On Repeat” and “Get What You Need.”
Nic was rushed to University College Hospital in Euston, London, UK in an ambulance and is being treated for symptoms of gastroenteritis, acute vomiting and dehydration. The singer will be held overnight for monitoring. JET are currently promoting their third studio album SHAKA ROCK which is out in the US on August 25th and in the UK on September 7th with a national UK tour.
