US rock band Clutch have been forced to cancel a show in New York City following vocalist Neil Fallon’s hospitalisation after fainting.

Earlier today, it was announced that US hard-rockers Clutch were forced to cancel the second of two sold out New York City dates because of an “unforeseen medical circumstance”.

While fans were understandably worried as to what exactly would have caused the hard-working band to make a rare cancellation, vocalist Neil Fallon took to social media to reveal that he was regrettably the cause, having been advised by doctors not to perform.

“Regarding tonight’s cancellation at Irving Plaza. It’s me. Again,” wrote Fallon on Twitter. “In the early afternoon I went for a stroll. I became light headed and dizzy. Next thing I knew I was coming to on my back in a puddle of water with 2 Secaucus policemen and paramedics staring down at me.”

“I took a header on the sidewalk. Was taken to the ER. Thankfully, both the EKG and CAT scan came back normal. I was diagnosed with something called ‘Near-Syncope,’ which, as far as I can tell, is the medical term for ‘We have no idea why you passed out, but ya did.'”

“Apologies to all the folks who made plans to come to the show but the doc says no. Believe me, no one is more pissed about this than I. We’ll be on tour for quite some time in 2019 and we’ll certainly try to get an Irving Plaza date in there.”

“One last note, the EMT, Paul, is a huge Clutch fan. It was good to meet you, Paul. You’re on the guest list for life. Thank you.”

At this stage, it’s not clear whether any more Clutch’s tour dates will be cancelled or rescheduled, but we hope that Neil Fallon makes a full recovery.

While it’s been over two years since Clutch last visited Aussie shores, we can only hope that this busy 2019 they alluded to might contain a trip down to our neck of the woods.
