Carlos Santana, rock icon, has postponed six dates on Friday after collapsing onstage during a Michigan show, a representative said.
Manager Michael Vrionis stated that Santana's recovery from heat exhaustion, dehydration and other conditions was being delayed in Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Vrionis stated that Carlos is doing well and was anxious to return to the stage soon. He also said that Santana "profoundly regretted" the delays, but that his health "is our number one concern."
According to The Indianapolis Star, his Friday show with Earth, Wind & Fire at Ruoff Music Center, Noblesville was delayed just minutes before he was due to take the stage.
According to the newspaper, there was a collective groan among the 20,000 people who had packed the venue when the news was read out on the stage. The concert was moved to August 3.
This was to be the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee's first show since he fell at the Pine Knob Music Theatre, Clarkson, north of Detroit. He was then carried offstage.
Also, a show in Burgettstown (Pennsylvania) was postponed.
The other five cancelled shows were to be held at venues in Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Dallas, Rogers, Arkansas, and The Woodlands (Texas).
