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.

I was there as well. He was messed up from the get go. He came back out and not only sang the exact thing but made all the same dance moves and dumb jokes. Not too impressed but what do you expect from a one hit wonder..or just does one hit before performing...??!!

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 and on each occasion it was just a mere case of "heat exhaustion" [cough, cough]

Hmmm, he has a really raspy voice, so perhaps he has a respiratory condition that is causing this. Perhaps he suffers from low blood sugar or low blood pressure, both those conditions can cause collapse without warning. Or maybe he was intoxicated or high - he has a track record for collapsing so something is definitely wrong.

Seems like there might be more going on. He also has "a seizure" while driving. Hope he's OK and he should use a driver.

Maybe after hitting his head he figured he could do the songs better the second time

This is false. Inside the venue was NOT 100 degrees. Come on! There were several people in there and it was 72 degrees in there, not 100. Maybe 100 out there but exaggerate much?!
