Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana gave everyone quite a scare in Detroit when he collapsed onstage during a performance. The show was at Pine Knob Music Theatre near Detroit. Thankfully, we learned on Wednesday morning that he was suffering from heat exhaustion.

He shared on his Facebook page a statement about the events that unfolded.

“To one and all thank you for your previous 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,” he shared in the update.

A statement from Santana’s representatives added, “Carlos was taken to the emergency department at McLaren Clarkston for observation and is doing well.”

The 74-year-old is not wasting any time in rescheduling tonight’s show in Burgettstown, Pa. He’s going to take a night off to rest, but he already has a makeup date for the missed show.

“Santana at The Pavilion at Star Lake is rescheduled to August 4, 2022. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date,” he said via social media.

The website now calls the show “An Evening with Santana.” He is currently on the ‘Miraculous Supernatural 2022’ Tour with Earth, Wind & Fire. The latter performed their scheduled show on Wednesday in Pennsylvania. The tour will be in Hershey, Pa. the next night.

Fans took to social media on Tuesday night to express concerns for Santana. Likewise, they were happy to see the news on Wednesday.

“Glad to see you are doing better,” one fan replied on Twitter.

“Positive energy for Carlos. Please get some rest,” chimed in another.
