Singer Post Malone suffered a serious fall during a concert in St. Louis at the Enterprise Center.
The 27-year-old was taken to hospital after the show, where it was suspected that he had broken several ribs.
Just sang his hit song’Connected round‘, Malone punches and shakes hands with concertgoers. But when he turned to face the other side of the stage, he entered a trap door, seemingly falling on his face.
The ‘Better now’ singer then rolled in agony while bewildered fans watched. In a video posted to Twitter, security jumped on stage to support the male singer.
Malone is said to have asked fans for a few minutes to withdraw from the stage and return 15 minutes later. Post back and perform’Rock star‘ and ‘Prison.‘
Anxious fans online reacted to shocking videos posted after the concert.
“Is there a gap in the middle of the stage anyway?” A concerned fan asked.
The trap door appears to hold his guitar and a chair during the acoustic part of the concert – however it is unclear why it remained open when Malone entered.
“What a great guy he is! He’s back and finished the show. Bless his heart!” one concertgoer wrote on TikTok.
Malone posted a video on Twitter to thank fans and reassure fans that he is fine.
“Thank you for your patience, thank you for putting up with my stupidity -” Malone begins the video.
“Whenever we did the acoustic part of the show, there would be a guitar and a guitar stand and it would collapse. [beneath the stage] and there’s this… big hole so I went around there, turned the corner and broke my… “
He told fans in the fall “Gived me pretty good” but added that they had returned from the hospital, where he received some pain medication and confirmed that he was “well”.
“I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis… next time if I go this way, we’ll put on a two-hour show for you guys to make up for some of the songs we missed,” he said.
