Country music star Jason Aldean is “doing fine” after rushing off stage during his concert Saturday in Connecticut.
Aldean, 46, suffered heat exhaustion during Saturday’s show at Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut, prompting him to end the concert early. On Sunday, Aldean provided an update on social media regarding his health.
“Thanks to everybody that’s called in, checked in. I’m doing fine,” Aldean said in a video posted to Twitter. “Just one of those things, man. It was hot, I was playing golf all day (Saturday) and then got to the show and just I think it was a combination of dehydration and heat exhaustion.”
While Aldean’s concert Saturday was cut short, it will be rescheduled, according to Xfinity Theatre.
“Yesterday’s Jason Aldean show will be rescheduled for a future date,” Xfinity Theatre said in a statement. “We appreciate your patience as we work on rescheduling a new date, as well as the outpouring of support for Jason. A rep has confirmed he is now doing well after experiencing heat stroke during last night’s performance. Please stay tuned to all social media channels for updates as they become available.”
Aldean’s bout with heat exhaustion comes days before his “Highway Desperado Tour” is set to stop near Cleveland on July 20 at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Aldean played his concert Sunday in Saratoga Springs, New York, which would reason that Thursday’s show at Blossom will go as planned.
Aldean’s concert Thursday at Blossom will also feature Mitchell Tenpenny, Corey Kent and Dee Jay Silver, according to the event page. Show time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
