One contestant’s parent took to Twitter, writing: ‘My son is in Nashville to finally see the great 80s rock line-up with Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett and Def Leppard. He waited so long. They had a storm spill on them, a lightning delay, and Poison just canceled. They say Bret Michaels is hospitalized.

While TMZ reported that the musician had a « bad reaction to medication, » his reps have yet to respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Michaels, who has type 1 diabetes, has had health issues in the past, from his emergency appendectomy in 2010 to his hospitalization in 2014 for kidney surgery.
