Aerosmith’s Joe Perry in Stable Condition After Collapsing on Stage
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is in stable condition after collapsing on stage during a performance on July 10 in Brooklyn, according to reports.
Perry was performing alongside rockers Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, collectively known as the Hollywood Vampires, at the Amphitheater in Coney Island. Perry appeared to suddenly fall ill, and staggered offstage before he was rushed to Coney Island Hospital. He was later transferred to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
Fans said the 65-year-old appeared sluggish and haggard during the group’s set. A fan who was in attendance at the show recounted the moment on Instagram.
“Joe Perry collapsed on stage just now! He had to sit on drum kit and then went behind a small wall and passed out. FDNY and NYPD carried him off quickly,” wrote leeniepics in a message accompanied by a video of the musician.
A tweet from Perry’s official account addressed his medical scare on Twitter after the show.
“Thanks to all of the fans reaching out and asking about Joe. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care,” read the tweet.
Cooper also offered an update on his fellow bandmate.
