Carlos Santana, a renowned American guitarist, passed out on stage during a concert in the open air close to Detroit, Michigan.

Medical workers attended to the 74-year-old in Clarkston on Tuesday, and he was then brought to a nearby hospital’s emergency room for examination.

Mexican-born Santana later admitted on his Facebook page that he had “forgotten to eat and drink water” and that, as a result, “I dehydrated and passed out.”

The musician was doing well, according to Michael Vrionis, his manager.

He did note that an event scheduled for Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday “will be postponed to a later date.”

At Clarkson’s Pine Knob Music Theatre, footage has surfaced showing Carlos Santana receiving assistance leaving the stage. The celebrity was seen waving to the crowd in the footage as he was taken away on a stretcher.

Representatives described the 10-time Grammy Award winner as having “heat fatigue and dehydration” by representatives.

The guitarist and his band Santana have been performing their Miraculous Supernatural concert around North America.

They achieved prominence in the 1960s and 1970s by inventing Latin jazz and rock ‘n’ roll fusion.

The Game of Love, Oye Como Va, and Black Magic Woman are a few of the group’s best songs.

Thanks to a particular playing style that features long, sustained notes, deft runs, and Latin rhythms, Santana is now regarded as one of the best guitarists of all time.

Carlos Santana played prettier, and Prince compared him to Jimi Hendrix as having had a greater influence.

He was admitted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. In addition, he came in at number 20 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time in 2015.

When Santana and other band members tested positive for COVIDin February of last year, they were forced to postpone several concerts.

The guitarist postponed a few of his Las Vegas shows in December after undergoing an unplanned and unidentified cardiac operation.
