Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has revealed he has ''no memory'' of collapsing while performing in Florida on Wednesday night (21.07.10)

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan can't remember collapsing on stage.

The 'Tonight, Tonight' singer - who passed out while performing at a gig in Florida on Wednesday night (21.07.10) - has revealed he has "no memory" of the incident, but is aware of it happening because of the bruising he has been left with as a result of the fall.

Writing on his twitter page, Billy said: "For those that saw me fall during Bullet, that wasn't a stage move or clumsiness, that was me blacking out and wiping out.

"I have no memory of falling against the drum riser and my guitar cabinet, but I can tell you I've got quite a good bruise + am moving slow. (sic)"

The guitarist - who was playing at the RITZ Ybor venue in Tampa as part of an intimate US tour - was said to have looked dizzy while performing 1995 hit 'Bullet With Butterfly Wings', before stumbling and falling into a drum riser.

Despite the fall, he seemed in good spirits, telling fans it was a "tremendous" show.

He tweeted: "Thanks a million to the fans in Tampa last night for a tremendous show! We can't tell you enough how much we appreciate you today. (sic)"

The band will continue their tour with a performance at the Valarium venue in Knoxville, Tennessee, tonight (23.07.10).
