Multiple witnesses tell TMZ Gallagher was doing his famous sledge-o-matic routine when he fell backwards onto the stage. We're told his eyes were closed and he was shaking.

Doctors -- who happened to be in the audience -- rushed on stage and straightened out Gallagher's arms ... and waited by his side until the ambulance arrived.

The guy is truly an "original"...and one of the smartest men you'll ever meet. I'll pray it's not serious. He is one of the "good guys" in show business.

Good thing the entire city of Rochester, MN revolves around the Mayo Clinic. If you have to get sick, not much better of a place.

This dude is a douche. I loved him when I was young, but I heard him recently on Marc Marons' podcast, and he was a turd. It completely changed my mind about him.

I met him in a grocery store in Wildwood, Nj before a concert while he was buying fruit. What a prick. told everyone to back off "don't you see i'm working". Lost alot of fans that day. Still-hope he's going to be ok
