The Kills’ Alison hospitalised

All that touring has taken its toll on The Kills (and now Dead Weather ) leading lady Alison Mosshart. The duo was forced to call short its show at the Fox Theatre in Colorado last night, with Mosshart taken to hospital.

NME reports the combination of a cold and the venue’s high altitude left the singer “short of breath”. She’s been given the all-clear though and will continue the Kills’ North American tour as planned (perhaps with a smidgen less chain-smoking).
