QOTSAQueens Of The Stone Age were forced to cancel a show in Stuttgart on Tuesday after Josh Homme collapsed on stage the night before.

On Monday night the band were playing Hamburg when Homme fainted on stage at the end of the set. He was rushed to a local doctor who diagnosed him with exhaustion and ordered him to rest in his bed.

His management have said that a combination of overwork and heat in the Hamburg club contributed to the collapse. Homme also went under the surgeons knife only a week before the current tour which added to his ill health.

The band however have vowed to carry on the tour and will still play festivals in Austria and Spain plus their US tour with Nine Inch Nails later this month.
