Post Malone abruptly canceled a show because of ‘stabbing pain.’ What does this mean for his tour?
The cancellation comes a week after Post Malone fell on stage during a concert in St. Louis
A week after falling on stage during a show in St. Louis, Post Malone abruptly canceled his Saturday show in Boston and returned to the hospital, suffering from breathing problems and “stabbing pain,” CNN reported.
“Today I woke up to cracking sounds on the right side of my body,” he wrote in a statement, per Deadline. “I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before. I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s like a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move.”
Post Malone has not mentioned canceling any other shows on his tour, which includes a stop at Salt Lake City’s Vivint Arena in November.
How did Post Malone fall on stage?
While performing his hit song “Circles” and interacting with fans at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis on Sept. 17, Post Malone stepped back and fell into a rectangular hole near the center of the stage, The Los Angeles Times reported. As he turned from his stomach to his back, the music stopped and security came onto the stage.
X-rays revealed that Post Malone bruised his ribs, the rapper’s manager, Dre London, said in an Instagram post on Sept. 18.
“In true Posty fashion loving his fans he finished the show!” London wrote. “I truly don’t know any artist like him.”
Post Malone later explained to fans in a video on Twitter that the hole on stage was where his guitar rises up during the acoustic part of show, per The Los Angeles Times.
Is Post Malone still doing his ‘Twelve Carat’ tour?
Shortly after the fall, Post Malone said he still planned to carry on with his “Twelve Carat Toothache” tour, which stops at Salt Lake City’s Vivint Arena on Nov. 1.
Post Malone turned away from the entertainment hub of Los Angeles to live close to Salt Lake City, in a “near-seven-acre mountainside sanctuary,” Billboard reported.
“Here, there are very few distractions,” he said, per the Deseret News.
He previously called Utah an “oasis” away from Hollywood, the Deseret News reported.
Post Malone’s current tour is in support of his his fourth album, “Twelve Carat Toothache” which he released in June. The album features a number of guest artists, including The Weeknd, Doja Cat and Fleet Foxes, according to a news release sent to the Deseret News.
