Leonard Cohen collapsed on stage today while performing in Spain, El Mundo reports (via AFP). Don’t worry though, he appears to be okay. Cohen was performing “Bird on a Wire” in Valencia, when he lost his balance while reaching for a guitar. Backup singers saved his fall, but he collapsed again moments later and the concert was cancelled as Cohen sought medical treatment.
Band member Javier Mas told El Mundo that Cohen’s condition was not serious and that he had a “severe attack of indigestion” followed by vomiting.
