Tim McGraw collapses on stage during concert
Country Music Star Tim McGraw was forced to cut his Dublin gig short after collapsing on stage on Sunday night (Mar. 11). The 50-year-old singer was performing at the Country to Country (C2C) music festival when he unexpectedly dropped to his knees while singing his single Humble & Kind.
McGraw then received medical attention backstage and his wife Faith Hill came out to address the audience, and reassured them that the incident was purely down to her spouse being “super dehydrated“.
“I apologise, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out onstage,” Hill added, to cheers and applause from the understanding audience.
A representative for McGraw later said in a statement to Rolling Stone: “Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show. He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine. He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon.”
It was the singer’s third night in a row performing because of C2C, a three-day, three-city country-music festival which took place in London, Glasgow and finally Dublin where McGraw and Hill were headliners.
