The Charlatans, referred to in the U.S. as The Charlatans U.K., were playing Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia when Jon Brookes collapsed and stopped breathing. Fortunately for the band, there was a doctor in the audience who administered first aid and managed to get the musician breathing again.

Brookes was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital where he was given a CAT scan, and has since been transferred to a larger hospital for more tests. He is reported to be improving and doctors do not expect the incident to have any long-term effects on his health, according to the band’s website.

However, the band later tweeted that tonight’s show at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Cabaret has been canceled.
