UPDATE: The band shared an update on their website on Sunday, postponing an upcoming show and explaining that Kiedis was suffering from intestinal flu.
"Due to Anthony Kiedis' hospitalization from complications from the intestinal flu on Saturday evening, the Red Hot Chili Peppers regretfully must postpone their upcoming concert for iHeart Radio on May 17th," the band added. " They would like to extend their gratitude to the fans for the outpouring of well wishes. Anthony is expected to make a full recovery soon."
Red Hot Chili Pepper's frontman, Anthony Kiedis, was rushed to the hospital on Saturday ahead of the band's headlining spot on KROQ’s Weenie Roast Festival in Irvine, California.
The 53-year-old singer was reportedly rushed to the hospital with severe stomach pains, according to Billboard. KROQ, a local rock station in Los Angeles, let fans know about the cancellation via Twitter at 10:30 p.m. PT, roughly 30 minutes after the band was scheduled to take the stage.
Unfortunately due to illness the @ChiliPeppers were forced to cancel their set tonight at #WeenieRoast. More details to come.
