Post Malone helped out by medics after falling through stage at gig
Medics had to rush to Post Malone’s aid after the singer fell through the stage while performing in Missouri this weekend.
Posty is as of now on visit in the US and Canada, with shows planned routinely until the center of November, yet on Saturday night (17 September) he had to enjoy some time off from his gig while performing at the Undertaking Community in St Louis.
Footage from the event shows Malone singing on a platform which stretched out from the stage to the centre of the crowd, happily performing his popular track ‘Circles’ when the floor suddenly gave way beneath him.
One of his legs fell straight through the stage and Malone crashed to the floor along with it, smacking his torso and apparently also his head against the platform in the process.
As the group let out wheezes of shock, the artist immediately moved on to his back and seemed, by all accounts, to be gripping his ribs in torment.
According to TMZ, the hole in the stage had appeared when Posty had lowered his guitar out of sight, but it hadn’t been covered up again afterwards. An eyewitness told the publication one of the singer’s legs was shaking uncontrollably in the aftermath of the event, and footage shows medics quickly rushing to his aid.
Malone was accompanied from the stage and went behind the stage for a speedy recuperation period, yet not entirely settled to engage his fans as he returned 15 minutes after the fact to play out his tracks ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Cooped Up’.
He could be seen clutching his ribs as his sang, indicating he was still in pain from the fall, but he proved himself to be a true star as he thanked the crowd for putting up with the delay, told them there was a ‘big-a** hole in the stage’ and apologised to fans for the situation.
Posty then successfully completed the show and even handed out a few autographs afterwards. He hasn’t posted any updates about his condition on social media, but there’s nothing to suggest his show in Columbus this evening has been cancelled or rescheduled, indicating he’s still good to go.
The ‘Sunflower’ vocalist has been lauded for the manner in which he took care of the circumstance and has been met with an abundance of help from fans trusting he ‘recovers soon’ and petitioning God for his ‘quick recuperation’.
After Columbus, Posty is set to appear in Toronto, Canada before returning to the US for shows in Boston, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and elsewhere.
LADbible has reached out to representatives for Malone for comment.
Post Malone took a super nasty fall on stage … it was so bad, medics had to help him off and the fans didn’t know whether to wait it out or pack it in.
It happened Saturday night in St. Louis at the Enterprise Center halfway through the concert, where he was performing “Circles.”
Post was showin’ his stuff as he walked down a ramp that extended onto the floor of the arena. It would’ve gone fine, but there was a hole in the floor that he used to lower his guitar and it hadn’t been covered up.
He stepped in it and took an awful fall … sprawled out on the concert floor.An onlooker tells TMZ one of his legs was shaking wildly. Doctors surged in and in the end flanked him as he left the stage.
He requested that fans give him a couple of moments to gather himself, however obviously, everybody was concerned and some dicey he’d try and return.
15 minutes later, Post resurfaced and performed “Rockstar” and “Cooped Up.” “Rockstar” fits because Post was determined to continue even though he clearly was in pain … clutching his ribs as he sang.
Post expressed gratitude toward the group for hangin’ in there and let them know there was a “major butt hole in the stage” and, surprisingly, apologized – – excessive. He completed out the show and, surprisingly, remained after to sign a couple of signatures.
No word on his condition … however, he’s planned to proceed with his “Twelve Carat Visit” in Columbus Sunday.
