Dehydration and heat
By Blurt Staff
At a concert at Bataclan in Paris Saturday night (July 28) Ministry’s Al
Jourgensen collapsed onstage and was sent to the hospital. Loudwire reports that Sunday’s performance at the L’Etaples France Rock en Stock
festival was subsequently cancelled.
A statement on Ministry’s Facebook page cites a
“full-system collapse due to extreme dehydration and heat exhaustion
intensified by the lack of ventilation on stage at the venue.” Jourgensen
added, “I will make it up to you, somehow. I love Paris, I love the Parisian people. I’m so
sorry …but, shit happens and the shit hit the fan for me last night.”
No excessive alcohol or drugs have been mentioned as contributing
