The Exploited Singer Suffers On Stage Heart Attack

Veteran punk band The Exploited have been forced to cancel their tour after frontman Wattie Buchan suffered a heart attack on stage during a concert last Thursday (February 13th).

The band were performing at the Lisbon, Portugal stop of their European "Tour Of Chaos" with Hatebreed and Napalm Death when Buchan suffered the heart attack, according to Classic Rock.

On Thursday night the band apologized to fans via Facebook by posting "Sorry to have stopped the concert halfway through tonight but Wattie had taken very ill and couldn't continue. Thanks for your understanding."

The band then posted a follow-up message on Friday where they announced they were pulling out of the tour. They wrote, "I'm sorry to say that due to a severe illness. That Wattie can't continue with the tour. He will be in hospital for at least a week. Thanks for all the get well messages. Much Appreciated."
