Tim McGraw Collapses During C2C Festival in Ireland
Tim McGraw collapsed during a C2C Festival show in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday night (March 11).
Multiple reports from fans indicate that McGraw had just finished "Humble and Kind" and was taking the crowd's response in before he fell to his knees and needed assistance getting off the stage. After a break, Faith Hill came to the front of the stage with the couple's band (it was a co-headlining date) and explained that her husband was dehydrated. She had made the decision that he would not return to the stage.
"We've all been a little bit dehydrated traveling so much," she said, adding that it was her call. The crowd erupted in applause at hearing this and began chanting, "Get well, Tim!"
A fan named Del Crookes was in the audience and tells BBC that the incident was "a bit of a shock."
"I thought he was taking in the applause while sitting down after singing 'Humble and Kind,'" he adds. "But when a spotlight was switched on him, he was slumped on his knees on the left hand side of the stage. The light was quickly turned off and you could see his crew helping him off — and the band ran over as well."
The fan notes that about 20 minutes passed in between the time McGraw left the stage and Hill came back. A publicist says McGraw was treated on site and will be fine. After her announcement, Hill performed a gospel song called "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and ended the show.
The C2C (Country to Country) Festival is a three-day, three-city country music festival in Europe. The concert was at the 3Arena. The couple had played in Glasgow and London the previous two nights.
