British rockers The Verve have dismissed reports their guitarist NICK MCCABE was hospitalised following an appearance at a music festival in Japan.
Online reports surfaced at the weekend (09/10Aug08) reporting MCCabe was forced to seek urgent medical treatment following the band's performance at the Summer Sonic Festival in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday (09Aug08).
The musician was reportedly flown home without his bandmates - throwing the rest of their live dates this month (Aug08) into jeopardy.
Rumours also stated that the rockers subsequently cancelled their forthcoming headlining appearance at Britain's V music festival on 17 August (08).
However, a representative for the band has vehemently denied the stories, insisting MCCabe was only treated by medics for a cut finger.
The spokesperson tells NME.com, "Contrary to rumours circulating, Nick MCCabe cut his finger on piece of glass in the dressing room after the gig in Japan.
"He was treated by medics at the scene and then flew home. He's fine except for his sore finger and that won't effect their appearance at V at the weekend."
