Carlos Santana collapsed on stage at Pine Knop

Rock legend Carlos Santana suffered heatstroke and collapsed during Tuesday night’s show at the Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkston, his management team confirmed on Facebook early Wednesday.

Concertgoers say the 74-year-old musician was singing “Joy” before he suddenly stopped.

“He was walking and playing and all of a sudden he fell down,” said Janet Brown of St. Clair Shore, who was celebrating her birthday by attending her fourth Santana concert.

The lights dimmed, and then arena officials announced that Santana would not be returning to the stage.

Santana’s team posted on her Facebook page early Wednesday morning that she was “extremely suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration.” He was taken to the McLaren Clarkston emergency room for observation and is “doing fine,” the Post quoted Santana’s manager, Michael Vrionis, as saying.

Wednesday’s show in Burkettstown, Pennsylvania, has been postponed, the post said.
