Al Jourgensen Collapses Onstage

Last Saturday night Al Jourgensen of Ministry collapsed onstage during a concert in Paris.  He was sent to the hospital where he was diagnosed with “full-system collapse due to extreme dehydration and heat exhaustion intensified by the lack of ventilation on stage at the venue.”

He’s cancelled a few shows but promised “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.”

He did consider retiring from Ministry for health reasons and has said “For the last four tours, I’ve been puking up blood.  When I’m at home, I don’t drink or anything like that. But when you’re on tour, everything’s crazy. I never said anything about it because I just thought that was part of getting old and going on a rock tour – you puke up blood!”
