Rising guitar band Bloc Party have pulled out of their forthcoming American concerts after drummer MATT TONG suffered a collapsed lung last night (09NOV06). The incident happened shortly after the band wowed crowds at the Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre in Atlanta, supporting American rockers Panic! At The Disco. A spokesperson for the band says, "Doctors at the hospital in Atlanta say Matt is in a comfortable condition and not in any danger, he will however be staying in hospital for at least the next three days for observation and it's not clear at this stage when Matt will be fit to resume performing."
