GUITARIST Carlos Santana has “collapsed” in the middle of a concert in Michigan.
A crowd swarmed the stage to assist the fallen musician, 74, at the Pine Knob Music Festival in Detroit, a local journalist reported.
“Carlos Santana just passed out on stage,” said Roop Raj with FOX 2.
“Medical personnel on stage. Crowd asked to pray for him because of a ‘serious medical’ issue.”
Another video on Twitter shows the star waving while he was carried off stage.
This incident comes months after he faced an “unscheduled heart procedure,” resulting in an abrupt end to a tour.
On December 1 2021, he said that he “had this thing happening in [his] chest” some time on Saturday, November 27, and he recalled how his wife took him to the hospital.
“So when we went there,” he said, “we found out that I needed to take care of it.”
Following the incident, Santana canceled seven of his shows. However, he planned to be back on stage by January 26, 2021.
” I’m going to be taking time off for a little bit to make sure I replenish, and I rest and I catch up with my health so that when I play for you, I will play the way I’m used to and give you 150 percent.”
The artist is currently on the road for his Miraculous Supernatural 2022 Tour: Santana + Earth, Wind & Fire.
The audience was asked to leave the concert and pray, a local journalist said.
He is set to perform tomorrow in Burgettstown, Pennslyvania.
It is unclear whether or not this incident will affect his future stops.
Santana is an American guitarist who rose to prominence with his band Santana in the late 1960s and early 1970s, pioneering the synthesis of rock ‘n’ roll and Latin American jazz.
His music’s sound comprised his lyrical, blues-based lines placed against Latin American and African rhythms played on percussion instruments, such as timbales and congas, that aren’t commonly heard in rock.
