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.

Good thing is that is the home of the Mayo clinic which is the best hospital in the world, so odds r he is getting the best care he could possible get.

Rochester, MN? So he gets rushed to The Mayo Clinic. There are worse spots in America to collapse with chest pains.

Can't say as I blame him much on the discord for Detroit. Hopefully it's on the rise, but who knows.

I rented him a car in Chicago many years ago and he was very nice. He asked me if I could help him out with jokes about South Bend, IN because he was performing there that night. I hope he is ok!
