You should add one bathroom break behind stage so you can drink more water under those steamy lights. I remember you looking at me in the eye while playing your solo with one hand!

I was at the St. Louis showlast night, and I never thought I'd witness Mike pulling off one of the most jawdropping & badass moments I've witnessed in concert. We were 7 rows back on his side and I could literally see his last notes on 'Don't Come Around Here No More' before nearly passing out on stage, eyes rolling in the back of his head. ... See MoreComing back out after that, then kicking away the chair the crew set there for him was amazing to see. We started up 'Mike, Mike, Mike' chants after he led the comeback on stage, and he completely deserved it. Amazing man he is, not giving up on the crowd at his own expense. Please take care Mike, we love ya!!! Kevin Crabtree

Drink some Gatorade...Gator. Heat exhaustion is very serious. Please take care of Mike guys. I have done the same thing a few times myself. It is a very bad feeling. Hydrate, use lots of fans or else stop doing outside concerts in the middle of summer, guys. Too risky. Glad Mike's okay.
