Mike Nesmith, Guitarist for the MONKEES Taken to Hospital From Keswick Theater

Michael Nesmith, guitarist for The Monkees, became ill while preparing to perform for his June 21st show at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, according to initial reports from TMZ.

TMZ was told the  75-year-old Nesmith collapsed to the ground during the band’s soundcheck Thursday afternoon at the Keswick Theatre. Michael was not unconscious, but he was rushed to a hospital.

His rep said Michael was discharged, but it was unclear what the medical emergency was that prompted his hospitalization.

A rep for The Monkees later told TMZ … Michael did not collapse during the band’s soundcheck — he had a minor health issue before he even made it to the venue. We’re told the issue’s not serious, but he was advised to rest for the next week.

The rep added, the remaining  four dates on The Monkees Present: The Mike & Mickey Show tour have been postponed until a later date, so no word on a new Keswick date. Michael’s in good spirits and heading back home.
