Carlos Santana, a renowned guitarist, fainted on stage at the Pine Knob Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan, this Tuesday. The performer was currently touring in the United States.
As per Telemundo, health practitioners stepped onstage to assist the 74-year-old Mexican performer, and the crowd was requested to pray for his recovery. After Santana collapsed, the musician was on a night of his latest tour, ‘Miraculous Supernatural 2022 Tour: Santana Plus Earth, Wind & Fire’.
Pictures and videos of his crew and health professionals on stage to assist Santana, whose physical state remains unknown now, have surfaced on social media.
Official details released from the incident-
Michael Vrionis, Santana’s management team, published a statement on Tuesday Evening stating the musician is “doing well.” However, “the concert scheduled for tomorrow [July 6th] at the Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, Pa. will be postponed to a later date.
More details to follow thru Live Nation,” he concluded.
According to witnesses, Santana was around 20 minutes into his concert when he sat back down on the drum platform at the start of “Joy” and afterwards collapsed straight back.
Fox2 Detroit’s Roop Raj said healthcare teams hurried onstage, and the audience was first “advised to pray for him due to a ‘serious medical concern.” Fortunately, the musician’s health improved immediately after, and he gestured to his supporters as he was carried offstage while partially hidden by a black sheet that workers held up to protect him from view whilst still the health workers inspected him.

The musician’s magical career in the industry-
Santana, a Mexican native, started learning to play the guitar as a toddler and eventually migrated to California with his parents. In 1966, he founded the Santana Blues Band in San Francisco, and the subsequent summer, he appeared at the famed Monterey Pop Festival. He teamed with Davis in 1999 for the smash, mainstream pop-oriented “Supernatural” album, and their collaboration, “Smooth,” was among the generation’s top albums.
The CD restarted his career, and in the decades afterwards, he has performed and regularly extended his catalog of 26 album tracks. He has produced over 100 million albums worldwide and has received 10 Grammys and three Latin Grammys.
