Post Malone is on tour to back his newest album, Twelve Carat Toothache

During his Saturday (September 17) show in St. Louis, the singer tripped over an opening on stage and suffered an injury, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and TMZ report. 

Singing his song “Circles,” the vocalist stumbled and partially fell into an on-stage opening that had been utilized to move his guitar but hadn’t been completely closed. 

Medics hurried to the stage and took the R&B musician into their care. Following a break of 15 minutes, he came back to the stage and gave his apologies to the fans for the incident. 

“St. Louis, I’m so fucking sorry I ruined the show tonight, ladies and gentlemen,” he stated. 

“I promise next time I come around; I won’t fucking wreck y’alls night; I’m sorry for that. That being said, I want to thank you for your patience, and I’m sorry. There was a big-ass hole in the middle of the stage that I just busted my ass on.”

Post Malone Apologizes

Following the incident, Post continued to sing his songs “Rockstar” and “Cooped Up.” In addition, he performed in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday. And he’s still set to perform additional dates on his Twelve Carat Tour slated for later this year. 

Post Malone then updated his fans on his condition on Sunday through his social media. In a short clip, he expressed gratitude to his fans for their patience and said he’s feeling better following the fall. 

“We just got back from the hospital; everything’s good – they gave me some pain meds and everything so we can keep kicking ass on the tour,” Post said. 

“I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis, and I want to say thank you guys so much for coming to the show. And next time I’m around this way, we’re gonna do a two-hour show for you to make up for the couple missed songs that we missed.”
