Ross scraps Saturday night show

Rap star Rick Ross has scrapped a second show after suffering two mid-air seizures in a day.

The heavyweight hip-hop hero was forced to axe a concert in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday night (14Oct11) after twice falling ill en route to the gig. And the health scare prompted Ross to pull the plug on a show in North Carolina on Saturday (15Oct11).

The rapper was hospitalized in Birmingham, Alabama following an emergency landing on Friday night. He was hospitalized in Florida earlier in the day after suffering the first of his seizures onboard a private plane bound for Tennessee.

Ross is next scheduled to perform at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday (21Oct11).

No further information about his condition was available as WENN went to press.
