Aerosmith star Joe Perry was hospitalised after performing with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden in NY on Saturday night. Fans reported that the rocker stumbled behind an amplifier during the show and collapsed. EMTs on site revived Perry and immediately transported him to the hospital in that incident.

Perry recently released a new song, "Quake", with vocals by Gary Cherone of Extreme, and plans to go on a solo tour along Cherone and Aerosmith member Brad Whitford. The musician is also slated to join his bandmates when they begin their Las Vegas residency in April 2019.

Perry was forced to cancel an appearance that day for obvious reasons, however, his rep indicated he was hopeful he would "return to the road later this month".
