Carlos Santana has postponed the next six shows of his tour “out of an abundance of caution” for his health.

Carlos Santana’s return from a frightening moment at a concert in Michigan was put on hold Friday, minutes before he took the stage in Noblesville, Indiana.

The 74-year-old musician was scheduled to perform at Ruoff Music Center Friday night after an opening performance by Earth, Wind & Fire. But after that group left the stage, concertgoers were informed that Santana would not be taking the stage.

The 74-year-old musician collapsed on stage during a performance in Michigan earlier this week and doctors have recommended that he take time out of his tour to recuperate.

His manager Michael Vrionis said in a statement to PEOPLE that they are postponing the shows “out of an abundance of caution for the artist’s health.”

He added: “Doctors have recommended that Mr. Santana gets rest to recuperate fully.

“Santana is doing well and is anxious to be back on stage. He just needs to rest. Santana profoundly regrets that these postponements of his upcoming performances; but, his health is our number one concern. He is looking forward to seeing all of his fans very soon.”

Santana is currently on his Miraculous Supernatural 2022 Tour with Earth, Wind Fire but left fans concerned after he was “overtaken by heat exhaustion and dehydration” earlier this week.

He wrote on Facebook: “to one and all thank you for your precious prayers. Cindy [Santana’s wife] and I we are good just taking it easy forgot to eat and drink water so i dehydrated and passed out blessings and miracles to you all (sic).”

In an Instagram post Friday, Mendes, 23, announced he was postponing his next three weeks of concerts, including a scheduled July 12 date at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum.

Mendes wrote that the toll and pressure of the road has led him to a breaking point.

“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost. As soon as there are more updates I promise I will let you know,” he wrote.

A statement on the Fiserv Forum website said previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date when it is announced. Customers who want a refund instead can get one at point of purchase.
