Red Hot Chili Peppers Singer Anthony Kiedis Hospitalized
Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis was rushed to the hospital over the weekend, just before taking the stage at the KROQ Weenie Roast at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre.
A KROQ rep told Billboard that Kiedis was experiencing “extreme stomach pain” before being transported to a nearby hospital.
The band has since issued a statement revealing that the singer is suffering from the flu, and as a result they will be forced to cancel their May 17 show in Burbank.
"Due to Anthony Kiedis' hospitalization from complications from the intestinal flu on Saturday evening, the Red Hot Chili Peppers regretfully must postpone their upcoming concert for iHeart Radio on May 17th. They would like to extend their gratitude to the fans for the outpouring of well wishes. Anthony is expected to make a full recovery soon."
