Bret Michaels hospitalized with appendicitis

Via an update on his Facebook page, we’ve found that Bret Michaels has been hospitalized after being diagnosed with appendicitis.

His page reads:

Moments before he was to take the stage last night (April 11th) in San Antonio, Doctors at Sea World urged Bret Michaels to go to the hospital as the singer had been suffering all day from severe stomach pains and what was assumed to be a severe case of the flu. After further examination by Doctors in San Antonio it was determined that the singer was suffering from an acute appendicitis. He was rushed into emergency surgery at 1:00 a.m.. According to Doctors, Michaels, who remains in the hospital, is doing well and beginning the recovery process.

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.

Get well soon, Bret!
