The singer Morrissey has been dramatically rushed to hospital after collapsing on stage during a concert in Swindon in the UK.
The 50-year-old singer, formerly the lead vocalist with the band 'The Smiths' apparently collapsed with breathing difficulties during a performance of the song 'The Charming Man' at the Oasis Leisure Centre in Swindon.
It's reported that two of the band members performing with him carried him off the stage and then he was taken to Great Western Hospital by ambulance. His current condition is described as 'stable'.
Morrissey has already cancelled several concerts this year due to ill health.
Speaking on behalf of the Great Western Ambulance service a spokeswoman said, "Just after 9pm we got a call to a 50-year-old who was reported to be suffering from respiratory problems and was unconscious. We sent a paramedic in a double-crewed ambulance. When they arrived they found a conscious patient who was not feeling well at all. They made an initial assessment and took him to the Great Western Hospital for further assessment."
Speaking on behalf of the Great Western Hospital in Swindon a spokesman said, "Morrissey was brought in to the Accident and Emergency department this evening. He has been seen by the medical team. At this stage his condition is stable."
All being well Morrissey is due to perform in the next few weeks in Holland, France, Belgium, Germany and Ireland before moving onto the USA where will perform nine concerts.
