“Brian picked up a virus, which coupled with jet lag and exhaustion caused his collapse onstage,” the band said in a statement posted on their website, Placeboworld.co.uk. “Thanks to prompt and professional care Brian is recovering well.”
They went on to apologise to fans: “We would like to extend our grateful thanks and sincere apologies to the fans who made a huge effort travelling to see us in Osaka, especially after long queues in the heavy rain.”
