Carlos Santana Collapses Onstage In Michigan

During his July 5 set at the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, MI, Carlos Santana ended up collapsing onstage due to “heat exhaustion and dehydration.” As a result, the guitarist’s July 6 show at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA has been postponed.

A representative initially issued the following statement:

“From Team Santana: Rock Legend Carlos Santana was over-taken by heat exhaustion and dehydration during a concert Tuesday (July 5) evening in Michigan. The guitar great was taken from his show at Pine Knob Music Theatre (formerly DTE Energy Music Theatre), an outdoor amphitheater in Clarkston, some 40 miles northwest of Detroit, Michigan. Carlos was taken to the emergency department at McLaren Clarkston for observation and is doing well, it was announced by Santana’s manager Michael Vrionis tonight. “The show with Earth, Wind & Fire for tomorrow July 6th at The Pavilion at Star Lake (formerly the S&T Bank Music Park) in Burgettstown, PA will be postponed to a later date. More details to follow thru Live Nation,” Mr. Michael Vrionis added.”

Santana has since issued his own statement as well:

“to one and all
