Rocker Bret Michaels had barely started a concert in New Hampshire when he rushed from the stage after suffering a medical emergency.

Guitarist Pete Evick said on Michaels' Facebook page the former Poison frontman was three songs into his set in Manchester on Thursday. A crew member said Michaels' blood sugar was extremely low. The singer was diagnosed with diabetes as a child.

Evick says Michaels returned to the stage, telling fans he couldn't continue performing. Evick says when he went to the band's bus to check on Michaels, "he could barely speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans."

On Twitter and Facebook, Michaels thanked paramedics who helped him.

In 2009, the rocker was performing at the Tony Awards when he was hit in the head with a set piece. He suffered injuries that he claimed contributed to a brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him.

In 2010, Michaels made it to the finish line Sunday of "The Celebrity Apprentice" despite life-threatening illness and was rewarded with victory and $250,000 for charity.

"You've done an amazing job in every single way," Donald Trump said before announcing his choice on a live segment of NBC's reality show. "A little flaky, but that's OK. ... You've also proven ... to be very brave. I appreciate that."

Michaels' appearance on the finale, which included live and taped segments, had been in question after he suffered a brain hemorrhage in April and was hospitalized again recently after suffering what doctors called a warning stroke. He faces surgery for a hole in his heart.
