One day after collapsing onstage during a music festival in Ireland, Tim McGraw is on the mend.
Looking very fit, the country superstar was spotted leaving his hotel in London Monday with his wife, Faith Hill. McGraw, 50, offered a hearty thumbs up to waiting photographers.
“Lots of flying and dehydration … gotta cut short my workouts,” McGraw joked to TMZ as he arrived at the airport in New York City Monday night.
On Sunday, McGraw cut his set short at the Country to Country festival in Dublin after being weakened due to dehydration.
The singer dropped to his knees after singing his song “Humble & Kind” at the concert, attendee Stephen Sweeney tells PEOPLE.
“As the song ended he sat down on the drummer’s platform as if he was taking in the audience reaction. The lights went down and a few seconds passed when we heard a thump, like the microphone dropped to the floor. Then the lights flashed on and we could see Tim kneeling on the left-hand side of the stage. Two people ran on and carried him off stage.”
Hill, who was also booked to perform at the festival, appeared on the stage approximately 20-30 minutes later to tell fans that her husband was suffering from dehydration and would not be returning.
A fan account shared a video of the moment to Instagram.
McGraw’s rep told PEOPLE in a statement, “Tim McGraw was suffering from dehydration in Dublin this evening at the C2C show. He was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine.”
“He and [wife Faith Hill] thank everyone for their love and support and look forward to seeing their Irish fans again soon,” the statement continued.
McGraw and Hill, 50, were participating in the three-night country music festival with multiple stops. The couple performed Friday in London, England, and Saturday in Glasgow, Scotland, before Sunday night’s show in Dublin.
The couple is next scheduled to bring their joint Soul2Soul tour to Richmond, Virginia, on May 31.
