Rock star Bret Michaels was forced to cancel a show this evening in Wilkes-Barre, Penn. As announced on his Facebook page, the singer was ordered by the doctors to rest until his blood sugar levels regularize.
On Thursday night, Michaels suffered from serious health complications including insulin shock and low blood sugar while he was performing on stage. Since he was a child, the rock star suffers from type 1 diabetes, which eminently causes any health issue to worsen. Guitarist Pete Evick was told by Michaels to keep singing as he rushed off the stage in Manchester, NH. “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.” said Evick. Then, the guitarist added that Bret Michaels was concerned about the fans and begged him to apologize to them.
Furthermore, in a statement posted earlier today on Bret's official website and his fan page on Facebook, it was announced that his tonight's show was eventually canceled due to the singer's health condition. “Under strict medical direction Michaels will not be able to perform this evening in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania as doctors have ordered him to let the flu virus run it's course and let his blood sugar re balance and remain consistent. While hoping to perform tomorrow in Albany, type 1 diabetes complicates health issues such as the novo flu virus and must be monitored and taken very seriously.”
The superstar is hoping to resume his tour dates this Saturday May 31 in Albany.
