December 14, 2007|From the Associated Press

Liza Minnelli collapsed after finishing a song during a performance in Sweden, and she was seen by a doctor at her hotel and then flew Thursday to the United States for medical treatment, concert organizers said.

Minnelli, 61, was performing in a Christmas show Wednesday in Goteborg, Sweden's second-biggest city, when she collapsed while walking offstage, said Zlatko Nedanovski, a spokesman for the concert organizers, said. She was immediately taken to her hotel, he said.

Minnelli's spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg, said a doctor examined Minnelli, and in consultation with her New York physician, determined that she needed "to immediately return to New York City to receive further medical evaluation."

Minnelli, the daughter of Judy Garland, won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the 1972 film "Cabaret." She won an Emmy for the 1972 TV special "Liza With a Z," and Tony Awards in 1974 and 1978.
