Grateful Dead's Bob Weir collapses onstage

GRATEFUL DEAD star BOB WEIR sparked concern for his health on Thursday (25Apr13) after collapsing onstage during a concert in New York.

The rocker was performing with his band Further at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester when he fell to the floor in the middle of a song.

Bandmates and crew members helped him get up and Weir, 25, finished the song from a chair before leaving the stage to seek medical attention backstage.
