Country singer Jason Aldean said he is “doing fine” following a health scare on stage Saturday due to heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Aldean was performing at the Xfinity Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut, when fans started to notice Aldean struggling to sing his song and then he abruptly ran off the stage.

One Twitter user shared a video of the incident, sharing her sympathy for the country singer having to perform in the heat: “#JasonAldean runs off stage at the #xfinitytheatre show in #HartfordCT. Poor guy.”

To the fans’ dismay, the remainder of the concert was canceled.

In a Facebook post, Xfinity Theatre announced that the concert will be rescheduled, and said it appreciates the fans’ patience under the unique circumstances.

“We appreciate your patience as we work on rescheduling a new date, as well as the outpouring of well wishes for Jason,” the post said.

Rumors that Aldean suffered a heat stroke caused the country singer to explain on social media that his symptoms were not that serious and that he thinks it was heat exhaustion and dehydration from playing golf that day in the heat.

He added that after receiving two IVs, he began feeling a lot better and was healthy enough to carry on his next performance in Saratoga Springs, New York.

His caption said, “Thanks everyone for checking in on me. Hartford, we’ll share rescheduled info soon. Saratoga Springs, see ya tonite!”

Aldean’s heat-related medical scare occurred while much of the U.S. is in record-setting heat conditions.

“Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year,” per the National Weather Service.

Much of the U.S. is under excessive heat warning.

Infamous for its record-breaking heat temperatures, Death Valley in California saw temperatures as high as 128 degrees Fahrenheit, according to The Associated Press.
