Yesterday, it was reported that Glenn Hughes was carried off stage by paramedics at a show in New Zealand cutting the show short. Until this morning, fans were quite unsure of the reason for this sudden health scare.
This morning, however, Glenn posted a video explaining the reason for being carried off stage by paramedics.
“I want to thank all of you for your loving messages. Last night was a bit of a hiccup. I hadn’t been drinking enough water. Note to self: Mr. Hughes, drink water. So, again, thank you so much for your loving messages, and on we go. Peace and love! See you soon.”
Last year, Joe Perry ran into the same situation when after a show in Brooklyn he collapsed just after exiting the stage. This too was a result of dehydration.
It certainly is great to hear that Glenn Hughes is doing well. It’s always a scary thing to hear when a rock star, or anyone for that matter, has to be escorted off stage by paramedics, but luckily, Glenn is perfectly healthy!
