Country singer Jason Aldean will reschedule a cut short concert after suffering heatstroke onstage, a rep has confirmed.
Aldean took the stage Saturday at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford, Connecticut, where temperatures peaked at 89 degrees.
At one point during the performance, Aldean appeared to struggle to sing before leaving the stage, footage shared by fans showed.
The venue confirmed on Sunday that the show would be postponed indefinitely and that Aldean is doing well.
“Yesterday’s Jason Aldean show will be rescheduled for a later date,” Xfinity Theater said in a statement. “We appreciate your patience as we work to reschedule a new date, as well as the outpouring of good wishes for Jason.”
“A representative has confirmed that he is now well after suffering heat stroke during last night’s performance,” the statement added. “Please stay tuned to all social media for updates as they become available.”
“Just want to let you know, thank you to everyone calling and checking in,” Aldean said in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon. “I’m fine. Just one of those things. It was hot. I played golf all day yesterday then went to the show and, just, I think it was a combination of dehydration and exhaustion due to heat.”
Aldean said while he wasn’t sure the episode was as bad as heat stroke, it was still “pretty intense”.
