The Zurich show: How it all started

The singer, who last performed in Zurich, says he started experiencing the symptoms while being backstage in Zurich during his heavy entertainment tour.

My left arm went numb and I couldn’t stop dribbling out of the side of my mouth.

He also said he had a headache and troubles with breathing. A doctor was called backstage to check him out. After the show, however, the symptoms didn't go away, so Robbie decided to make a checkup before continuing with his tour.

From tour to seven days in intensive care

Robbie went to London to run some tests, and the result was more serious than he thought.

I had blood tests done, and I had various scans including ones of my heart and my brain, and there were some abnormalities found, including something on my brain that looked like blood.

The abnormality found in his brain led to intensive care and the subsequent cancellation of his tour. His wife Adya couldn't be with him at the time as she was taking care of their two children, but Robbie received the best care in the medical facility.
