Bret Michaels‘ health has taken a turn for the worse.
According to a post to the rocker’s website, Michaels has recently had kidney surgery and has been hospitalized six times in the last two weeks, which has resulted in a slew of rescheduled tour dates.
“Over the last two weeks Bret was in and out of 6 hospitals throughout the Midwest,” wrote Pete Evick, Michaels’ longtime guitarist. “Including the incredible Mercy Hospital of Northwest Arkansas. The staff and doctors were unbelievable and took incredible care of Bret. Bret continues to be steadfast in his dedication to bring the music to the people. He truly has to be held down to not perform.”
Two stents were put in his body last week to help his ailment, but Michaels apparently insisted on performing — and after another show, found himself hospitalized and worse off than before.
