Smash Mouth frontman leaves in ambulance mid-show
Even all stars get sick sometimes: Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell reportedly left the stage after collapsing mid-concert Saturday night to be rushed away in an ambulance. According to the band’s official Twitter, Harwell’s fine now, although they didn’t specify what happened. Their manager hasn’t immediately responded to EW’s request for comment.
Fans posted about the incident, which occurred during Smash Mouth’s set at the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival, on Twitter, where one said that the band performed both “I’m a Believer” and “All Star” after Harwell’s departure.
Harwell previously made headlines in June 2015 when audience members threw bread — yes, bread — at him during a Smash Mouth show at a Colorado festival. “I’m going to beat your a–, whoever the f— you are,” he said before threatening to leave the stage.
Smash Mouth are next set to perform in Las Vegas Sept. 3. See their full list of upcoming tour dates here.
