Bret Michaels was just three songs into his set Thursday (5/29) in Manchster New Hampshire when he abruptly left the stage and paramedics were alerted that he needed assistance. The specifics of his condition were not available, but the onset was swift and debilitating. His guitarist, Pete Evick, said, 'Bret had me sing a song as he rushed off stage. In the nine years I've stood next to him, I've never seen a look like the one on his face as if I was a complete stranger. He returned to the stage only to announce that he could not continue. When I rushed to the bus he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them.'
