Brett Michaels hospitalized in Nashville

Brett Michaels was rushed to hospital in Nashville on Thursday evening ahead of the Nissan Stadium show.

A source told TMZ that the 59-year-old rockstar is receiving treatment after experiencing an apparent bad reaction to a COVID-related drug. The reaction may have been triggered by Michael’s diabetes.

Poison is currently on a stadium tour with Def Leppard, Joan Jett and Motley Crue.

Audiences claim that before the show began, members of Poison’s band took to the stage to deliver the bad news that Michaels had been taken to hospital.

Also, the bandmates added that they couldn’t perform the set without him. Therefore, the concert was eventually canceled.

Bret Michaels’ history of health problems

This isn’t the first time Bret Michaels has been in the spotlight for health issues.

Back in 2014, Music Icon had 6 hospitalizations in just 2 weeks. He was then known to have had two stents placed on his body.

Additionally, in 2011, Michaels underwent surgery to puncture his heart.

After the surgery, the musician said, ‘I want to go out on the road again and have some fun on stage for all my great fans’.

Also, before that, in 2010, the artist underwent an emergency appendectomy. Shortly thereafter, he suffered a hemorrhage at the base of the brainstem.

Michaels spoke to HollywoodLife about his recovery after 10 years. ‘I’ve mostly regained most of my functions,’ he said. I have a few obvious brain problems and some obvious hand and leg problems, but they’ve been addressed through therapy.’
