A statement released by Spektor's rep explained her sudden health scare. It said, "Last night in Nashville, TN, following her sound check at the Ryman Auditorium, Regina Spektor was taken to a local hospital after collapsing due to a severe inner ear infection which caused a sudden case of vertigo."
The statement also revealed that she was released immediately after but is still recovering. "Regina is extremely disappointed that she had to cancel on her fans but will return to the Ryman on December 6th, where all tickets will be honored or refunded," the statement added.
