Bret Michaels Appendix Removed In Emergency Surgery
Hey PopCrunchers, one of music’s favorite shaggy-haired rockers needs your good vibes. Former Poison frontman and Rock of Love star Bret Michaels underwent an emergency appendectomy this week after being rushed to the hospital with severe stomach pains early Monday.
Michaels was just about to take the stage in San Antonio on Sunday night when his appendix burst, his rep told PEOPLE. Doctors diagnosed the musician with acute appendicitis and rushed him into the operating room.
Fans can expect several of the star’s upcoming concerts to be rescheduled as Bret remains in recovery at a Texas hospital.
“Michaels, who has been known to perform under extreme conditions that would make most performers cancel, will unfortunately have no choice but to reschedule some of his April tour dates. A listing of all dates being rescheduled will be posted to his website in the coming days.”
The 47-year-old “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” star is a diabetic and has been hospitalized several times over the years due to complications of the disease.
