Mexican superstar Gabriel stops concert

Empty

MEXICO CITY -- Superstar Juan Gabriel had to stop his concert in central Mexico after nearly fainting, the singer said on his Web site Monday.

Juan Gabriel Aguilera, a flashy star often compared to the late U.S. Liberace, was giving a concert in Puebla, 65 miles southeast of Mexico City, when he said his blood pressure rose and he felt faint.

"I was going to faint but I did everything I could to control myself and I managed to do so, but I could not continue because I needed air," Juan Gabriel wrote to fans on his Web site.

Juan Gabriel, who fell from the stage during a concert in 2005 in Houston, promised to take better care of himself. A six-time Grammy nominee, Juan Gabriel is Mexico's top-selling artist. He has sold more than 30 million albums.
