Tone Loc Collapses on Stage

Rapper Tone Loc collapsed on an Austin, Texas, stage Friday night (June 15). According to TMZ, Loc's manager said that temps inside The Moody Theater where he was performing reached over 100 degrees before Tone nose-dived mid-concert. 

 

Although heat exhaustion is being blamed, it's also suspected that Loc could have suffered from a seizure. A similar incident occurred last fall in which Tone Loc collapsed on a stage in Atlanta. At the time, a seizure (which Loc has been known to suffer from) was suspected but never confirmed. Similarly, Loc claimed he suffered exhaustion. He was also rushed to a Florida hospital in 2009 after passing out during a show as well. 

 

Loc returned to the Texas stage just 30 minutes after resting and getting some water. The following night he performed at another Texas venue without incident.
