UPDATE: Magician Criss Angel to perform after losing consciousness

LAS VEGAS - UPDATE: Criss Angel plans to perform on Saturday night at the Luxor following Friday night's incident. It is not certain if he'll try his straightjacket escape. 

MINDFREAK LIVE! at the Luxor came to an abrupt halt on Friday night after magician Criss Angel passed out during his show. 

Angel lost consciousness while performing his famed upside-down straitjacket escape while suspended from his feet, according to a statement. 

"He was lowered to the stage and rushed to the hospital where he was evaluated and released early this morning. He is undergoing additional testing today and while it is not yet certain, it is his hope to return to the stage in his hit show MINDFREAK LIVE! at Luxor Las Vegas tonight," the statement continued. 

Angel says he's grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from his fans around the world.
