Post Malone Explains How And Why He Fell On Stage And Hurt His Ribs
Post Malone took a nasty fall on stage while playing last night in St. Louis as part of his Twelve Carat Toothache Tour, and he instantly began to writhe in pain. After leaving the stage, he returned 15 minutes later and claimed to have broken three ribs.
Post Malone somehow came back to finish his show, although he was obviously in pain as he groaned during the last few songs. Videos of the incident have now gone viral. Why did he fall, and what actually happened? Why did he fall into the big hole in the middle of the stage in the first place?
In an Instagram video posted by Malone’s manager Dre London, Posty is addressing the camera following his hospital visit and seems like he’s understandably on some pain meds. He begins graciously, thanking fans in St. Louis profusely before explaining why the hole was on stage and how he fell: “Whenever we do the acoustic part of the show, the guitars are on the guitar stand… and there’s this big ass hole, so I go around there and I turn the corner and bust my ass,” he said, detailing the fall. “[It] winded me pretty good. Got me pretty good. We just got back from the hospital and everything’s good. Everything’s good. They gave me some pain meds and everything so we can keep kicking ass on the tour.”
He finished the clip my telling fans in St. Louis that, “Next time I’m around this way, we’re gonna do a two hour show for you so we can make up for the couple missed songs that we missed.” He genuinely seemed concerned for the experience of his fans, which was endearing to watch.
In another post, London posted a picture of him and Malone and explained that despite how painful the fall looked, the medical diagnosis was actually of three bruised ribs, not cracked. “Post Malone didn’t break 3 ribs last nite thank god. We did X-rays @ hospital after the show & they declared he had bruised his ribs!,” he commented. Adding that, “In true Posty fashion loving his fans he finished the show! I truly don’t know any artist like him.”
The Twelve Carat Tootheache Tour continues tonight (September 18th) in Columbus and it’s safe to that fans in Ohio are ready to welcome a pain meds-laden Posty with open arms.
