Red Hot Chili Peppers pull gig after Anthony Kiedis is taken to hospital

By Laura Harding

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has been taken to hospital, forcing his band to cancel a gig at the last minute.

The group - set to play in Belfast in August - were due to play at KROQ's WeenieRoast at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California, but the remaining members appeared on stage to break the news to the crowd.

A video shows bassist Flea telling the audience: "Anthony is on his way to the hospital right now and we're unable to play this evening. We are devastated."

The band are due to headline Tennent's Vital at the Boucher Road Playing Fields on Thursday, August 25.
