“Hi Everyone! Carlos & I thank you so much for your prayers, love, care & concern for him!” drummer Cindy Blackman Santana wrote on her official Facebook page.

“Please know that he’s resting and doing very well! He was diagnosed with heat exhaustion & dehydration… it was 100 degrees on stage and 114 under the lights so that coupled with not enough water is what caused the issue,” she explained. 

“He’ll be as good as new soon! Thank you again and we love you! Cindy & Carlos,” she concluded.

As reported by Fox 2 Detroit, Santana said on his own Facebook page that he had “forgot to eat and drink water”. 

“to one and all, thank you for your precious prayers. Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy,” said the post on Facebook.  “blessings and miracles to you all.”

After the famed guitarist was taken off the stage following his collapse, the rest of the concert was canceled.

The concert in question was part of the ‘Miraculous Supernatural Tour’ with Earth Wind & Fire. The show that was scheduled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 6 has been rescheduled to August 4.

“Earth, Wind & Fire will not be part of the newly rescheduled date. Instead, the new date will be an Evening with Santana,” an update on Santana’s official website reads.
