Post Malone was taken to the hospital after a terrifying on-stage incident.
During his performance on Saturday at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, the rapper fell through a hole in the stage. While he was performing “Circles,” it occurred. He entered a “big ass hole” where his guitar is lowered after descending a ramp that extended onto the arena floor.
He quickly fell to the ground and, splayed on the stage and visibly in pain, slid over onto his back. One of his legs was violently shaking, according to TMZ. Medical personnel and concert staff jumped in to assist.
In spite of being in pain, he somehow returned to the stage 15 minutes after asking the crowd to give him a few minutes to recover.
He said, “I want to thank you for your patience,” before making light of his stumble. “I apologize; there was a large ass hole in the center of the stage, and I simply burst my ass. I want to express my gratitude to everyone for persevering. I have the greatest fans in the entire globe. I’m going to keep trying to kick ass, keep going, and make this fuin’ tour fantastic no matter what we fuin’ do.
Later, he was taken to the hospital where X-rays were obtained. He reportedly shattered three ribs, but his manager made it clear that he only cracked them.
“Thank you to everyone for the kind words! wrote Dre London on Instagram. Thank God, @postmalone didn’t break three ribs last night. After the show, we had X-rays taken at the hospital, and they discovered that he had bruised ribs!
Posty addressed the incident and apologized to fans for having to cut the show short in a video that was released on Sunday.
He declared, “We just got back from the hospital and everything is fine. They provided me with pain medication and other supplies so that we could continue to rock the trip. The next time I’m in the area, we’ll perform a two-hour show for you so we can make up for the few songs we missed. I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis and thank you all for coming to the show.
The program must continue. In Columbus, Ohio, Post will perform tonight as part of his “Twelve Carat Tour” with Roddy Ricch.
