Musician Carlos Santana performs onstage during the 2005 American Music Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on November 22, 2005 in Los Angeles, California.

Last night, Carlos Santana collapsed on stage during a performance at the Pine Knob Theatre in Michigan. His press team quickly released a statement saying that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was overtaken by heat exhaustion and dehydration. “Carlos was taken to the emergency department at McLaren Clarkston for observation and is doing well.” Santana’s manager Michael Vrionis said in the press release, “The show for tomorrow, July 6, 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.”

Santana later posted a message to his fans on his Facebook page, saying, “to one and all
thank you for your precious prayers
Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy
forgot to eat and drink water
so i dehydrated and passed out
blessings and miracles to you all.”

Cindy, of course, is his wife, drummer Cindy Blackman Santana. Santana’s next scheduled date is July 8 at the Ruoff Music Center in Noblesville, IN.
