Veteran singing star Liza Minnelli is to resume her tour after collapsing on stage during a performance last month.

The 61-year-old is preparing for her next concert in the US on 12 January and is in good health, according to her lawyer Allen Arrow.

"She was that sick," Mr Arrow told the Associated Press, but refused to say why Minnelli collapsed while walking offstage at a concert in Sweden.

After taking medical advice, she flew back to the US on 13 December.

'Terrible pain'

"You wonder why she had the courage to get on the stage when she shouldn't have," added Mr Arrow.

Concert promoter Michael Silfverskiold told the Reuters news agency a crew member caught her as she fell off stage, and that she escaped additional injuries.

He said that it was evident that the singer was "in terrible pain".

Concert spokesman Zlatko Nedanovski told the Associated Press that Minnelli passed out as she walked off stage.

Minnelli, who won an Academy Award in 1972 for her performance in Cabaret, will take to the stage again in Providence, Rhode Island.

The daughter of film star Judy Garland is due to perform a number of concerts in the UK in May.
