Bret Michaels is recovering from his emergency appendectomy at a private care facility for diabetics.
A statement posted on the US rocker's website said surgery went well and that doctors are optimistic the former frontman for 80s band Poison will make a full recovery.
The statement says "the fact that he was exhausted due to his rigorous schedule prior to the surgery and coupled with the fact that he has diabetes, the surgery has taken its toll".
Michaels, 47, had been scheduled to perform in San Antonio on Sunday night.
He had been suffering severe stomach pains all day and was urged to seek medical treatment.
