Due to exhaustion and dehydration, the guitar-legend Carlos Santana collapsed just 20-minutes into a concert in Michigan. The musician has since recovered, says his manager Michael Vrionis.

As part of his “Miraculous Supernatural 2022 Tour,” Santana was performing onstage at the Pine Knob Music Theatre, an outdoor amphitheater in Clarkson, Michigan.

In several videos circulating online, medical personnel and several of the concert crew can be seen attending to the musician shortly after he passed out at around 10 p.m. last Tuesday.

When it seemed that Carlos Santana would be needing more time to recover, he was brought off stage. He can be seen waving to the crowd as he was being wheeled off the stage. The crowed clapped and cheered back as a sign of support to the musician.

“To one and all: Thank you for your precious 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,” Carlos Santana wrote in a social media post.


He was brought to the nearby McLaren Clarkston emergency room for observation. According to Vrionis, the musical legend has been feeling better, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

“The show … at The Pavilion at Star Lake (formerly the S&T Bank Music Park) in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, will be postponed to a later date,” Santana’s manager said.

So far, only one concert has been announced for a reschedule due to the incident. The venue said all previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date, and more information will be emailed to ticket holders.

The Michigan concert was the 11th stop in a 30-city concert tour which began last June 17, 2022. This tour was originally scheduled in 2020; however, it was rescheduled twice due to the pandemic.
