Post Malone Trips On-Stage His Tour, Medics Rush to Help Him

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.”

“I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s like stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move.” 

According to the singer, he was in the hospital and apologized to fans for putting out the show at TD Garden, stressing that tickets will be valid for a rescheduled date when it is available. 

“I’m so f—ing sorry. I love y’all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I’m going to make this up to you,” he said. 

Malone was given medical treatment on September 17 at a hospital following his tripping on an opening, which was used to lower his guitar, on stage at his show at Enterprise Center in St. Louis. 

“Thank you for putting up with my dumbass,” he stated in a clip posted on Twitter during that time. “There’s this big ass hole so I go around here and turn the corner and bust my ass… winded me pretty good.” 

Announcing that he just got back from the hospital, Malone guaranteed fans that “everything’s good” and “we can keep kicking ass on the tour.”

Beerbongs and Bentleys, his second album, launched at the top ranks on the US Billboard 200 and broke numerous streaming records. It had the Hot 100 number-one singles “Rockstar” and “Psycho” and received a nomination for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards in 2018. 

The third number one, “Sunflower,” was the promotional and lead single to the soundtrack for the MCU film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It was on Malone’s third album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, which earned Malone the second number one. 

The second single also reached number one rank and broke records, remaining on the top ten charts for 39 weeks on the Hot 100.
