Latin Rock legend Carlos Santana collapsed on stage during his July 5 performance at Pine Knob in Clarkson, Mich.
The medical emergencey took place one hour into his concert that was part of a national tour with Earth, Wind and Fire.
Stage personnel immediately rush to his aid and draped a tarp over his body. Shortly thereafter, paramedics were on the scene and within 20 minutes Santana was rushed to the nearest hospital.
Reportedly, concertgoers experienced very warm and humid conditions at the evening outdoor venue.
Santana is recovering at McLaren Clarkston hospital after he fainted on stage from heat exhaustion and dehydration, according to his manager Michael Vrionis, in a Facebook statement. He also said Santana “…is doing well.”
Vrionis added that the July 5 show in Burgettstown, PA would be postponed to a later date.
Last year, Santana had successfully undergone a heart procedure and cancelled several Las Vegas shows planned for December, the Associated Press reported.
Santana, who has won 10 Grammy awards, including Album of the Year for 1999’s “Supernatural,” turns 75 on July 20.
