Liza Minnelli Collapses on Stage#1
Posted: 12/13/07 at 9:09am
"STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Liza Minnelli collapsed on stage during a performance in Sweden and was rushed back to the United States for medical treatment, a concert spokesman said Thursday.

The singer was performing in a Christmas show Wednesday in Goteborg, Sweden's second biggest city, but collapsed as she walked off stage after finishing her fourth act, Zlakto Nedanovski, a spokesman for the concert organizers said.

"As she walked down the steps, she passed out. She was taken immediately to her hotel where a doctor was waiting," Nedanovski told The Associated Press.

He said Minnelli was flown to the United States on Thursday on the advice of her doctors there."

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I don't like this part: "The promoter said her condition had clearly affected her performance. "You could see she was in pain," he said."

Or this one either: "Police were called to the venue, the Scandinavium, after reports crowds of concert-goers were angry and had demanded their money back."

It's really called the Scandinavium? That's f*cking brilliant.

Mag.. you are so misinformed.

I hope Liza gets well soon and it is nothing more than a flu or bug. Her new show is wonderful.

Statement from her website:

December 13, 2007

****

STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE REGARDING LIZA MINNELLI

"Liza Minnelli was scheduled to perform the final show (Dec. 12th) in a series of four concerts in Sweden this past week when she became very ill shortly after the show began. Ms. Minnelli who has been on a triumphant and critically acclaimed tour around the world, had complained of dizziness prior to the start of the show. As a result, she was unable to finish her performance and was rushed back to her hotel by her manager. A doctor upon examining her and in consultation with her NY physician, determined that it would be necessary for the Oscar winning actress and singer to immediately return to New York City to receive further medical evaluation."

This statement was released by Ms. Minnelli's spokesperson Liz Rosenberg

****

(Obviously there will be updated information posted on Liza as soon as is possible. Liza is flying back home to NY now, so obviously she is strong enough and well enough to fly. Again, as soon as there is updated information to send along, it will be posted. Thanks very much for your paitence and concern.)

No. It is not. It appears she collapsed after she left the stage.
According to Rick Cutlers son; the flu has been rampant through the band.

Not to take away from Liza, but I just got back from the doctor because I'm still sick from two weeks ago! I have whooping cough! The doctor said it will probably last another 3 or 4 weeks!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Liza collapse.
