After Sunday's Rock 'N Roll Riot Tour performance in Birmingham, England, Kaiser Chiefs' frontman Ricky Wilson fainted dead away. According to NME.com, after a high-powered performance, Wilson rushed off stage and passed out. A source close to the Chiefs told NME, "He got knackered and flaked out... They gave him some water and then he was bright as a button two minutes later." The Kaiser Chiefs are slated to perform again at London's Brixton Academy with Maximo Park and the Cribs. Hopefully Wilson will be able to avoid getting knackered or flaking out this time around.
