Rock Legend Carlos Santana collapsed from heat exhaustion and dehydration during a concert Tuesday (July 5) evening in Michigan. 

The guitar great was taken from his show at Pine Knob Music Theatre, an outdoor amphitheater in Clarkston, some 40 miles northwest of Detroit, Michigan, to the emergency department at McLaren Clarkston for observation and is doing well, it was announced by Santana’s manager Michael Vrionis tonight.  

“The show for tomorrow July 6th 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,” Vrionis added.

UPDATE (11:59 AM): Santana’s wife, drummer Cindy Blackman Santana, just posted the following on her Facebook page.

Hi Everyone! Carlos & I thank you so much for your prayers, love, care & concern for him! Please know that he’s resting and doing very well! He was diagnosed with heat exhaustion & dehydration… it was 100 degrees on stage and 114 under the lights so that coupled with not enough water is what caused the issue. He’ll be as good as new soon! Thank you again and we love you! Cindy & Carlos. 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
