Injury Prompts Tribute Band to Bow out of Malibu Music Festival

Fan Halen -- a tribute band -- has stepped in and will perform in the band's place.

An evening of tribute performances has some slight changes because of a serious injury to the singer of the Red Not Chili Peppers.

The group was originally scheduled to play Tuesday during a tribute evening at the Malibu Inn, according to Heather Weiss, a spokeswoman for the event.

Band member Remy Michael Fischer was injured by a palm branch, which pierced his forearm. Fischer was hospitalized, but photos on the band's Facebook page showed him smiling with his arm bandaged.

The group Fan Halen has stepped in and will perform in their place at 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to Weiss.

The concert is part of a week of performances leading up to the Malibu Music Awards.
