During a performance of “Love in an Elevator” at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota last night, Steven Tyler fell backwards off the stage and onto a few audience members. (Insert a zillion “going doooown” jokes here).
The Associated Press says Steven suffered minor head, neck and shoulder owwies. Steven was immediately airlifted to the hospital after being examined by an on-site doctor. A rep for the Buffalo Chip Campground, where the concert took place, said Steven was all jokes and laughed about it afterwards. The rep added, “He does a lot of dancing on the stage and he does a lot of stuff with his mike stand. He put his stand down and twirled around and stepped backwards off the stage. It was an unfortunate end to an extraordinary evening.”
Last month, Aerosmith was forced to cancel a bunch of shows after Steven effed up his leg while jumping onstage. Their bassist Tom Hamilton had to get non-invasive surgery and was temporarily replaced by David Hull for part of the tour. AND Joe Perry had knee surgery back in March. Can someone please send these dudes an emergency shipment of Three Wolf Moon t-shirts?! They should be required to wear them at all times!
I believe that Steven Tyler is going to outlive us all, so it won’t be long before he’s thrusting his crotch bone and shimmying like he needs a dollar in a serious way.
