Post Malone stepped into a large hole on the stage during his concert on Saturday night (September 17) and had to cancel the rest of the show.
More than mid-way through his performance in St. Louis, the singer fell into an open trap door. At the time, it was being used to lower his guitar.
After crashing hard on the stage floor, he clutched his ribcage. He was taken in the back for quick medical attention and about 15 minutes later, clearly in pain, he canceled the rest of the show.
Posty fell on the stage tonight. 😖 Seems like he’s okay, and back performing. #TwelveCaratTour

Following the incident, he gave fans an update on social media and promised to continue his tour and return to St. Louis and play another two-hour show.
“Whenever we do the acoustic part of the show, the guitar’s on the guitar stand and it goes down,” he said in a short video on Twitter. “And there’s this big ass hole, so I go around there and I turn the corner and I bust my ass. Winded me pretty good; got me pretty good.”
The singer added that he was taken to the hospital and given a clean bill of health. “They gave me some pain meds and everything, so we can keep kicking ass on the tour,” he said.
