Things didn’t go too well for the guitar slinger last night. During an appearance with the Brian Setzer Orchestra at the Isleta Casino & Resort in Alburquerque, N.M., Setzer was only a few songs into his set when he abruptly left the stage. According to witnesses, Setzer collapsed almost immediately upon exiting the stage.
Setzer was rushed to a local hospital, treated and released.
Now Setzer’s Web site has an update, saying dehydration, high altitude and vertigo were the culprits responsible for knocking the artist off his feet.
“Brian was briefly hospitalized in Albuquerque, NM last night after a combination of dehydration, high altitude, and vertigo made him unable to continue his performance at the Isleta Casino after several songs. Brian has completely recovered and will perform tonight at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix, AZ, and will continue with the remainder of the tour uninterrupted.”
