Somebody posted video of TIM MCGRAW’s stage collapse on Sunday in Ireland . . . but you CAN’T see it happen because the stage lights had gone dark. It looks like that was part of the show.
Here’s how it went down. He’d just finished “Humble and Kind” and was walking around the stage. He’s moving kind of slow but he seems okay. And then the stage goes completely dark. Like we said, probably part of the show.
About 40 seconds later you hear a faint thud, which everyone believes is Tim collapsing. A spotlight comes on and he’s on his knees. The crew comes over to help and the lights go down again. This time it’s probably on purpose to give him privacy.
(Careful: There’s crowd noise that could be hiding profanities. Here’s the video. You hear the fall at 0:54. Then the lights come on and you see Tim on his knees.)
Meanwhile, Tim gave a “thumbs up” yesterday as he and FAITH HILL left their hotel in London. Tim’s reps told “People“, quote, “He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine. He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support.”
