Ministry have posted the following message about Al Jourgensen being hospitalized after an on-stage incident.
"Ministry front man Al Jourgensen collapsed on-stage during the live Ministry performance and was rushed to hospital via ambulance where he was examined by numerous physicians and diagnosed to have had a full-system collapse due to extreme dehydration and heat exhaustion intensified by the lack of ventilation on stage at the venue. Doctors confirm via blood tests conducted that Jourgensen's alcohol blood levels were well below normal and no narcotics were found in his system.

"As a result, Ministry has cancelled today's appearance at the L'Etaples France Rock en Stock Festival in order to allow Mr Jourgensen a few days rest to recuperate and receive additional medical attention in Switzerland. Jourgensen fully intends to complete the remaining shows on the Ministry DeFiBriLlaTouR European leg."
Jourgensen extends his most sincere apologies to his devoted Parisian fans who displayed so much love, respect and concern for him before and after the Ministry show. Says Jourgensen: "I will make it up to you, somehow. I love Paris, I love the Parisian people. I'm so sorry... but, shit happens and the shit hit the fan for me last night."
Ministry have been performing in support of new album 'Relapse'.
