American guitarist Carlos Santana ‘doing well’ after collapsing on stage in Michigan

American guitarist Carlos Santana is “doing well” after recovering in hospital after falling on stage during a performance in Michigan.

Representatives for the musician said he was “overtaken by heat exhaustion and dehydration” during Tuesday night’s show.

The 74-year-old, whose bands are known for hits including Smooth and Mariah Mariah, was attended by several staff members and medical personnel.

Videos shared on social media showed Santana being helped to exit the stage and fans shaking hands as he exited.

Audience members were reportedly asked for their “prayers” by venue staff after a “serious” medical emergency.

“Carlos was taken to the emergency department at McLaren Clarkston for observation and is doing well,” the musician’s manager, Michael Vryonis, confirmed to the PA news agency.

The incident occurred during Santana’s Miraculous Supernatural tour, which the band is currently performing with fellow rock bands Earth, Wind & Fire.

Santana was performing at the Pine Knob Music Theater, an outdoor venue near downtown Detroit.

Mr Vryonis said Wednesday’s performance at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgetstown, Pennsylvania, would be postponed following the incident.

Santana was forced to postpone a portion of her Las Vegas residency in December last year following an “unscheduled” heart procedure.

They resumed residency in January and began a North American tour in March.
