Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana is recovering after collapsing on stage last night. Santana was performing at Pine Knob Music Theatre near Detroit when he went down about an hour into his set. The show was immediately canceled.
Medical personnel jumped on stage to tend to the 74-year-old before taking him to a local hospital. Santana was seen waving at fans as he left and soon after, representatives confirmed that the artist had been suffering from dehydration and heat exhaustion.
He’s since taken to Facebook as well. “To one and all,” he writes. “Thank you for your precious prayers…forgot to eat and drink water so I dehydrated and passed out. Blessings and miracles to you all.” A show that had been set for tonight in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania is also being postponed.
