Guitar legend Carlos Santana is recovering after he collapsed on stage during a concert near Detroit on Tuesday night.

The 74-year-old musician was performing at Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan, when he collapsed.

Photos and video posted to social media showed medics treating Santana on stage. He appeared to wave to the audience as he was wheeled away, which elicited cheers from those who remained at the venue.

Santana's manager Michael Vrionis told BBC News in a statement that Santana had suffered "heat exhaustion and dehydration."

He was taken to a nearby hospital for observation, where he was "doing well," the statement read.

Santana's on Wednesday evening show in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, has been postponed, Vrionis said.

The guitarist and his band Santana have been touring in North America with their Miraculous Supernatural show.

Last February, Santana and other members of the band tested positive for Covid and had to cancel several shows.

In December, the guitarist cancelled a number of performances in Las Vegas after he had an unspecified and unscheduled heart procedure.
