Verve's Salisbury Stands In for Charlatans' Drummer BrookesThe Charlatans have announced through The Charlatans Official Website that The Verve’s Pete Salisbury will act as stand in drummer for the UK tour whilst Jon Brookes recovers from his operation.

The official announcement continues, "Brookes, who collapsed on stage in Philadelphia last week, is preparing for his operation this week, back in the UK. It is not known how long he will be out of action but it is thought that Salisbury will complete the October UK tour at least."

The Charlatans' US tour was postponed, following the collapse of drummer Jon Brookes during a gig at Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s on September 15th.

The announcement that followed stated, "Early into the set Brookes suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing. Fortunately there was a doctor in the audience who administered first aid and got the drummer breathing again before the paramedics arrived minutes later. Brookes was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Philadelphia and during the night was given a CAT scan and has been responding well to treatment. He has now been transferred to a larger hospital in the city for further tests, although his condition is said to be improving and doctors believe there will be no long term effects on his health." Brookes was flown back to the UK for further treatment. Although The Charlatans were unable to continue their North American tour, they hope to reschedule the dates as soon as possible.

Brookes is reported to be undergoing treatment in the UK for a brain tumour. The band and Jon Brookes want to thank all well wishers for their kind messages of support.

Fans are advised to check the website regarding future tour dates.

Syracuse (NY) band Ra Ra Riot delivered plenty of energy and put the rock back into indie rock as it wowed a packed and receptive audience at Orlando's The Social on Tuesday evening.

Bespectacled bassist Mathieu Santos declared the band's intent from the very first track, using the full extent of the tiny, cramped stage during a lively rendition of "Massachusetts" while sharing vocals with cellist Alexandra Lawn.

With his soulful voice and powerful vocal range, frontman and physics graduate Wes Miles assumed vocals for the remainder of the hour-long set, with the exception of a brief but welcome interval when enchantress Lawn, moodily and sensually crooning the sombre, emotional, love-letter lyrics to “You and I Know,” held the center of the stage and most of the rapt audience attention.
