Subscribe to BRET MICHAELS alerts

BRET MICHAELS' recent health issues have unfortunately forced him to cancel Friday's show (May 30th).

The 51 year-old rocker, who was performing in New Hampshire on Thursday night, was rushed off stage only three songs in to be seen by paramedics.

Michaels, who was the frontman for mental band Poison, is a lifelong sufferer of type 1 diabetes and this condition caused the healthcare.

According to Pete Evick, a friend and guitarist touring with Michaels, the singer's "blood sugar was extremely low," but his fans were on the forefront of his mind even in "his sickest of conditions" as he made sure Evick apologised to the fans on his behalf.

Michaels' next show was scheduled for tonight at the Wilkes-Barre, Penn., along with Charlie Daniels Band and Marshall Tucker Band.

But only hours before Michaels was supposed to take to the stage an update was posted on his Facebook page:

"As previously announced, Entertainer Bret Michaels was physically forced to leave the stage last night at the Palace Theater in Manchester, New Hampshire due to complications involving insulin shock & severe low blood sugar, along with other conditions which doctors later determined included exhaustion/dehydration/fever and the noro flu virus. Michaels attempted to return to the stage to finish the show however it was clear to the band, crew, and audience that he would not be able to continue, as he walked of the stage and became violently ill.

"Paramedics present at the show immediately responded and 911 was notified. Unable to keep substance in his system complications with his insulin levels and inability to balance his blood sugar levels arose. Michaels was rushed by ambulance to CMC (Catholic Medical Center), and monitored through the evening as doctors tried to bring his blood sugar back to healthy levels.

"Under strict medical direction Michaels will not be able to perform this evening in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania as doctors have ordered him to let the flu virus run its course and let his blood sugar rebalance and remain consistent. While hoping to perform tomorrow in Albany, type 1 diabetes complicates health issues such as the noro flu virus and must be monitored and taken very seriously."

The Norovirus can lead to dehydration, which could explain the reason for Michaels' blood sugar to be so low.
