Poison frontman Bret Michaels treated by paramedics mid-show

The incident happened in New Hampshire last night (May 29)

Poison frontman Bret Michaels had to be treated by paramedics during a show in Manchester, New Hampshire last night (May 29).

The rocker, who now performs with the Bret Michaels Band, was rushed off the stage early on in the set and treated by medical professionals, states the band’s guitarist Pete Evick.

In a blog post via bravewords.com, Evick wrote: “This is a message I never imagined I’d have to post. Tonight in Manchester, NH, three songs into the set Bret had me sing a song as he rushed off stage. In the nine years I’ve stood next to him, I’ve never seen a look like the one on his face as if I was a complete stranger. One of the crew returned instantly to notify me that Bret’s blood sugar was extremely low.”

He continued: “He returned to the stage only to announce that he could not continue. As you all know he is a health fanatic and fiercely monitors his blood sugar, he basically had to be dragged off the stage in his sickest of conditions. When I rushed to the bus he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them. As of now he is with paramedics being evaluated. We will keep you posted throughout the evening.”

In 2011 Michaels underwent heart surgery to close a hole in his heart, a problem that was discovered after he had a stroke in 2010. In the same year he also suffered a brain haemorrhage.
