Heat Takes Toll On Heartbreaker

The Tuesday (7/20) concert by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at Blossom Music Center in Ohio got put on-hold after Mike Campbell was ordered by doctors to take a few days off after the guitarist passed out on stage during the band's show Sunday in St. Louis.  Campbell briefly lost consciousness during the Heartbreaker's set in Maryland Heights, MO.  The concert was halted for about ten minutes while medical attention was give to Mike backstage.  Trooper that he is, Campbell returned after being revived to play three more songs before the band shut things down for the night.  Diagnosed with heat exhaustion, doctors strongly advised that he take some time to hydrate and to regain strength before returning to the stage.  The band's next show following the postponed Cleveland concert is Thursday (7/22) at the Palace of Auburn Hills, near Detroit.  That show is expected to go off as scheduled.
