Valencia - (Golden Oldies Biz): A dodgy raw prawn paella was being blamed for the singer's collapse at the Luis Puig Velodrome last night half an hour after the start of the concert.

The former born-again Rinzai Zen Buddhust monk fell on stage, puking horribly as oblivious fans continued chanting the refrain frsom 'So Long Marianne' and 'Bird on the Wire'.

Cohen was then taken to Valencia's Lazarus Geriatric Hospital where four gallons of saline were pumped into his digestive system to flush out the last traces of the local e-Coli malignans pathogen.

Next week's shows in Barcelona, Toledo and Santiago Compostella will go ahead but may be ghosted by a Peruvian lookalike stand-in on 20% box office takings.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
