Rock Legend Carlos Santana Collapses On Stage

According to reports from the scene, rock icon Carlos Santana passed out on stage in the middle of a performance on Tuesday night in Michigan.

At the Pine Knob Music Theatre south of Detroit,the video captured him waving to spectators as he was carried off the stage on a stretcher.

Santana, who turns 75 later this month, was requested for prayers as fans were urged to leave.

Later, his management informed ABC News that although he was recovering well from heat exhaustion and dehydration, the performance scheduled for Wednesday night in Pennsylvania would be postponed.

He reportedly passed out while performing “Joy,” one of his more recent compositions, which he had only moments previously referred to as “mystical medicine music to heal a world afflicted with fear,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

One of the best and most creative guitarists of all time, Santana, had to postpone a few shows in December of last year owing to what was then referred to as a “unscheduled cardiac operation.”

He later described his sensation to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, telling them that he had a 94 percent blockage in one artery. “I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” he said.

After taking the stage again in January, Santana was forced to postpone additional performances in February when he and other band members contracted COVID-19 infections.
