The oldest Hanson brother – Isaac Hanson – has been hospitalised in Oklahoma with a potentially life threatening blood clot.

The band immediately cancelled their show in Tulsa last night (October 3) after the 27-year-old musician was hospitalised with the pulmonary embolism - a blockage in the arteries between the heart and lungs.

Isaac was taken into hospital after he complained of pains across his chest and shoulder. He’s suffered similar problems with his arteries before.

The band’s publicist Ken Philips said in a statement: "This could be serious, but nobody knows just yet. We are hoping for the best."

All the best Isaac.
