Post Malone helped out by medics after falling through stage at gig
| Last updated
Medics had to rush to Post Malone's aid after the singer fell through the stage while performing in Missouri this weekend.
Posty is currently on tour in the US and Canada, with shows scheduled regularly until the middle of November, but on Saturday night (17 September) he was forced to take a short break from his gig while performing at the Enterprise Center 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 crowd let out gasps of shock, the singer quickly rolled on to his back and appeared to be clutching his ribs in pain.
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 escorted from the stage and went backstage for a quick recovery period, but he remained determined to entertain his fans as he returned 15 minutes later to perform 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.
I keep seeing videos of Post Malone falling off stage last night and getting hurt, then he FINISHED his show. We really don’t deserve that man— 𝚋𝚛𝚊𝚗𝚍𝚒𝚎 (@brandiedcraft) September 18, 2022
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' singer has been praised for the way he handled the situation and has been met with a wealth of support from fans hoping he 'gets well soon' and praying for his 'fast recovery'.
After Columbus, Posty is set to appear in Toronto, Canada before returning to the US for shows in Boston, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and elsewhere.
