Bret Michaels Lives with Type 1 Diabetes : Rocker has medical emergency in concert

While playing a show in Manchester, N.H. last night, rocker Bret Michaels rushed off the stage to be evaluated by paramedics, according to USA Today. The team determined that Michaels’ blood sugar was extremely low.

Michaels has suffered from Type 1 diabetes since his childhood. He has also undergone numerous major surgeries, including an emergency appendectomy, heart surgery and brain hemorraging.

Pete Evick writes on Facebook:

This is a message I never imagined I’d have to post. Tonight in Manchester, NH 3 songs into the set Bret had me sing a song as he rushed off stage. In the 9 years I’ve stood next to him, I’ve never seen a look like the one on his face as if I was a complete stranger. One of the crew returned instantly to notify me that Bret’s blood sugar was extremely low.

He returned to the stage only to announce that he could not continue. As you all know he is a health fanatic and fiercely monitors his blood sugar, he 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.

As of now he is with paramedics being evaluated. We will keep you posted throughout the evening.

Bret Michaels’ Facebook team also posted a message, thanking paramedics for their help:

Sending a huge shout out to all the paramedics both on and off duty who have assisted Bret tonight. No words can thank you enough for your help.
