Jet’s frontman Nic Chester taken to hospital after London gig

Aussie rockers Jet were left worried last night when frontman Nic Chester was taken to hospital after collapsing on stage in London during a performance at the Hard Rock Café.

Two songs into the set, Nic fell to the floor but he got himself back onto his feet, jokingly telling the crowd he’d thought he had come down with swine flu.

A few minutes later the singer passed out again, prompting band members and medical staff and rushed to University College Hospital for blood tests.

The singer is still in hospital and being treated for symptoms of gastroenteritis, dehydration and vomiting however he is expected to be fit for Jet’s acoustic set at Parker McMillan on Wednesday.

The band are set to play a toned-down set in the UK capital as part of the This Feeling club night.

Support will come from Jersey Budd and Soul Boy Mystic Collective DJs. See Myspace.com/thisfeelingclub for details.

The band are in the UK to promote their comeback album, ‘Shaka Rock’, thats in stores on September 7.
