Exploited frontman Wattie Buchan has suspected a heart attack on stage for the second time

The Exploited frontman Wattie Buchan collapsed on stage in the middle of a show with a suspected heart attack.

Buchan was playing a show with the band in Bogota, Colombia on Saturday (December 10) when he clutched his chest and fell.

This would be the second time the Scottish punk band’s frontman has suffered a heart attack on stage.

In 2014, the 65-year-old suffered a heart attack while performing in Lisbon. NME reports.

Since the recent meltdown, the singer has been ordered to rest at a local hotel before returning to the UK, forcing the band to cancel the remaining dates of their tour.

“He tried to keep playing but actually had to stop a couple of songs before finally collapsing,” said the band’s rep STV Newsthat he had a suspected heart attack.

On Sunday (December 11), the band posted an update on Facebook, along with a video explaining how

The Post updated fans on his condition, explaining that the frontman was “taken to the hospital in an ambulance” after the collapse.

“Thankfully Wattie is better now and resting at a hotel in Bogota,” they wrote. “We hope to be able to safely return to the UK tomorrow.

“Due to medical orders, all remaining shows for 2022 have been cancelled, including tonight’s performance in Cali, COL.

“We apologize to the fans, organizers and everyone affected by this situation. Thank you for your understanding.”

The band also canceled their upcoming show in London, which was scheduled for Friday (December 16).

“Again we are sorry but Wattie is exhausted and is to cancel all upcoming gigs for this year,” they wrote.

Buchan has a history of problems with his heart. After his collapse in 2014, the singer underwent heart surgery, which the band says was successful.

However, in 2017 Buchan went to the hospital again while the band was on tour due to heart problems.
