A statement by Pete Evick, a friend and guitarist touring with Michaels, posted a statement on Michaels' website explaining to concerned fans what had happened backstage. Evick described how Michaels requested he sing whilst he walked off stage three songs into their set. It seems Michaels' "blood sugar was extremely low" and he could not continue, an announcement he chose to make himself by returning to the stage for a final time.

As Evick points out Michaels "is a health fanatic and fiercely monitors his blood sugar". He further emphasised how disappointed Michaels was at not being able to continue performing. It also appears his fans were on the forefront of his mind even in "his sickest of conditions" as he asked Evick to apologise to fans on his behalf.

Michaels is amongst the increasing number of people diagnosed with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. According to diabetes.co.uk, he is in good company with such famous figures as Halle Berry, Nick Jonas and Randy Jackson all suffering from diabetes of some form.
