Michael Nesmith, guitarist for The Monkees, fell ill while preparing to hit the stage for a concert in Pennsylvania … TMZ has learned.
We’re told 75-year-old Nesmith collapsed to the ground during the band’s soundcheck Thursday afternoon at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA. Michael was not unconscious, but he was rushed to a hospital.
His rep says Michael’s already been discharged, but it’s unclear what the medical emergency was that prompted his hospitalization.
The Monkees — famous for their hits, “Daydream Believer,” “I’m a Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville” — were in the middle of a national tour, and were set to perform at 8 PM ET. The venue has announced the show’s been postponed “due to illness.”
However, reps for the band tell us the rest of the tour — 3 more dates in NY and NJ — has been canceled.
