Jerry Lewis too sick to perform in Australia
"He couldn't even get out of the car, he was pale and looked extremely unwell," concert venue executive Richard Errington tells News.com.au.
The 85-year-old planned to do a series of eight concerts across the country to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia. Earlier in the day, he told a journalist of his "love of Australia and great no-nonsense Aussies."
When the crowd awaiting Lewis' performance was informed of his illness, they rose and gave the absent entertainer a standing ovation.
No details about Lewis' condition, or whether he was taken to a hospital, have been released.
