Tone Loc

COLLAPSES on Stage

6/16/2012 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0616_tone_loc_gettyRapper Tone Loc collapsed on stage last night during his concert, after suffering from heat exhaustion, TMZ has learned.

The "Wild Thing" rapper was performing Friday night at The Moody Theater in Austin, TX ... when he suddenly hit the deck mid-performance.

Loc's manager tells TMZ ... the inside of the venue felt like it was over 100 degrees, which caused the rapper to fall. He was immediately helped off stage, given water and cooled off for 30 minutes before returning to finish his set.

According to tweets from numerous eye witnesses however, the rapper weirdly performed the exact same songs as before the fall.

This isn't the first time Loc has taken a nose-dive mid-concert. In 2009 he was rushed to a Florida hospital after collapsing on stage and in 2011 he was hospitalized in Atlanta for exhaustion after another mid-rap fall.

We're told Loc is doing fine now and will take the stage again tonight in Lewisville, TX.

sounds like he keeps performing in hot humid places. I guess he's never heard of water! It will be hot in Lewisville tonight, probably 98 with heat index over 100 - guess he will fall down again

He should take some time off to re-hydrate. You know...get another tattoo...learn some new gang signs to flash...butcher a whole new portion of the english language with ebonics...find yet another baby mama. Just relax.

Judging by his voice, maybe he has some breathing troubles or something. His voice is about as raspy as it gets.


I hope it is nothing serious and he has a good show. Stay hydrated!

He performed the same songs twice? LOL! In his defense there's only about maybe three or four songs of his that anyone wants to hear. Maybe the nose dive gave him a concussion. Might want to get that checked out

I was just listening to a sports talk radio show with Andy Rossick and someone else, forget his name., on ESPN radio. Apparently they were part of the ones who organized this and they stated it was only about 65 degreees or so, and was definately not hot. They said LOC appeared very intoxicated and very out of it. So much so that after he collapsed he came back out 45 minutes later and forgot that he was half way done with his set and started all over form the beginning.

If you take Funky Cold Medina and then do the Wild Thing you will be in no shape for a concert afterwards.
