Famed country music singer Tim McGraw collapsed on stage while performing his hit song Humble and Kind at a concert in Dublin, Ireland.
In a video shared by a fan, McGraw is seen walking about the stage for nearly a minute as the Irish fans chant “Ole, Ole, Ole.” The lights are however turned off as he gets close to the end of the stage. After about 40 seconds a loud thud of something falling on the stage and gasps from the audience are heard. Later a spotlight shows the singer on his knees, with band members taking off their instruments and rushing to his side. Then the lights cut out again as McGraw is helped off stage for treatment by local medical staff.
His wife Faith Hill – also a country music star- later addressed the crowd, telling them, “Tim is fine. We’ve all been a little bit dehydrated traveling so much. He’s been super dehydrated, and I apologize but I made the decision that he cannot come back out on the stage,” she said, surrounded by the couple’s band. “So drink water, people. Keep yourself hydrated.”
The crowd could be heard chanting “Get well, Tim!” before Hill launched into an a capella version of What a Friend We Have in Jesus.
McGraw’s next scheduled performance is on May 31 in Richmond, Virginia, as part of the Soul2Soul tour with his wife.
