Fans in Dublin were shocked last night when Tim McGraw collapsed on stage during a performance.

The country superstar was appearing as part of the C2C: Country to Country Festival, which saw many huge country artists visiting London, Glasgow and the Irish capital over the weekend.

During last night’s closing Dublin leg, McGraw is said to have collapsed at around 10.35pm following a performance of his hit 'Humble & Kind'.

The 50-year-old reportedly dropped to his knees on stage before sitting down. He was then taken off stage.

After a short delay, his wife and fellow singer Faith Hill reassured the audience about the singer’s condition.

"He’s been super-dehydrated," she explained. "I apologise, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out on stage."

A representative for McGraw later said that he "will be fine".

"Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show," the statement read. "He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine.

"He and Faith thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon."

Tim McGraw is one of country's most successful artists of all time, selling over 80 million records worldwide. 

Get well soon, Tim!
