Country music star Jason Aldean assured his fans that he is recovering after experiencing a heat-related medical incident during his concert at the XFinity Theater in Connecticut last night, resulting in an early end to the show.
In a video posted on his Instagram Story on Sunday, Aldean expressed his gratitude to everyone who reached out to check on him. “I’ve had a lot of people checking in on me today after hearing about what happened last night at the show,” he said, acknowledging the concern. “I’m doing fine.”
Although Aldean believes he suffered from a combination of dehydration and heat exhaustion, he stopped short of diagnosing it as heat stroke. “I don’t think it was quite that serious,” he explained. Following the incident, he received two IVs to aid in his recovery.
Aldean described the challenging conditions during the concert, stating, “It was pretty intense last night at the show – anybody that was there knows how hot it was.” He expressed his determination to push through and perform as much as he could. However, he ultimately realized it wasn’t feasible and attempted to exit the stage to address the situation.
Videos circulating on social media captured Aldean visibly struggling to complete a song before hastily leaving the stage. Despite the unfortunate turn of events, he expressed his appreciation to his fans for attending the show. He acknowledged that it was not the way he intended to conclude the first week of his “Highway Desperado” tour.
The venue where the concert took place posted a statement on their verified Facebook page, announcing that the show will be rescheduled for a future date. Aldean’s representative confirmed that he is currently in good health.
In his Instagram video, Aldean reassured his fans that he plans to make it up to them. “We’ll come back and make it up to you,” he promised, expressing his regret for the unexpected ending. He also shared the news that he is feeling significantly better and affirmed his commitment to performing at his upcoming show in Saratoga Springs on Sunday.
