Dragon Ash’s Furuya Kenji hospitalized


Vocalist Furuya Kenji (32), also known as Kj of the rock band Dragon Ash, was recently admitted to the hospital for a condition described as “multiple hemorrhagic gastric ulcers.”

Dragon Ash performed in Shin-kiba, Tokyo, on May 29 as part of the “ROCKS TOKYO 2011” event. He was already feeling ill at the time, and he took the stage with the help of medicine and an intravenous drip. However, when he later went to the hospital for a detailed examination, he was diagnosed with serious ulcers and was advised to undergo a month of treatment.

Due to Furuya’s hospitalization, Dragon Ash’s performance in Akasaka, Tokyo, on June 3 has been postponed until July 28. The band is also scheduled to participate in the Kyoto Daisakusen 2011 festival on July 10, but it has not yet been determined whether Furuya will recover in time.
