Kix’s Jimmy Chalfant is currently recovering after collapsing onstage during the band’s November 18 show at the Tally Ho Theater in Leesburg, VA. The drummer was taken to the hospital after suffering from a suspected heart attack.
Kix issued the following statement:
“KIX drummer Jimmy Chalfant is awake, alert, resting comfortably and in good spirits in the hospital after collapsing towards the end of their performance at the Tally-Ho Theater in Leesburg, Virginia on night one of a two nights stint.
While clearly a cardiac event, it is unknown at this time whether or not Jimmy actually suffered a heart attack. Jimmy will be undergoing a series of tests to determine exactly what in fact occurred.
The second performance scheduled for this evening (Saturday Nov 19th) is understandably postponed with a makeup date pending the prognosis of Jimmy’s condition.
KIX appreciates the outpouring of love and concern for Jimmy and thank everyone for their courteous understanding in the matter.”
