Rock legend David Bowie was rushed to hospital in Germany on Friday, after suffering a pinched nerve in his shoulder.

The singer missed a gig in Neuhausen ob Eck on Saturday (26JUN04) and has now cancelled concerts in Vienna and Salzburg, Austria on Tuesday and Wednesday (29+30JUN04) after breaking down in pain on stage in Prague, Czech Republic last Wednesday (23JUN04).

He braved the pain and performed at the HURRICANE FESTIVAL in Schessel on Friday (25JUN04), but had to be taken to hospital that evening - and was kept overnight for treatment.

Representatives for the 57-year-old star are unsure if the injury will affect his 62-day tour of North America and Europe.
