Bret Michaels

Suffers On-Stage

Medical Emergency

0530_bret_Michaels_gettyBret Michaels had to cut short a concert last night after just three songs when he suffered a medical emergency related to his diabetes.

Michaels was performing in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday night when he rushed off stage. Michaels was suffering from low blood sugar -- he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a child.

The Manchester Fire Department tells TMZ that a 911 call was placed around 9:45 PM about a diabetic problem on a tour bus. EMS was dispatched to the scene to treat Michaels.

Michaels' guitarist posted to Michaels' Facebook page after the show, "[Michaels] basically had to be dragged off the stage in his sickest of conditions. When I rushed to the bus he could barley speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them."

Not a good situation, especially if you lead a busy lifestyle and don't have the time for proper meals. Get well soon!

I hope this has-been gets better soon. He was a great performer and relevant.... 25 freaking years ago. Maybe his headband cut off blood flow to his enormous ego. Recover well, old Poison guy.

The more important question is did his wig fall of during all of this?

Never liked him ever since his dating show. Only brought in a black woman when people complained he had none, then promptly dumped her while not so subtly alluding to her being a man.

I thought maybe his bandana had finally gotten so big that he could no longer see anything because it now was covering his eyes.
As for his diabetes, he showed the world how little he cares for his health when he had his reality tv show years back.
