Joe Perry “Stable” After Collapsing At Hollywood Vampires Show (VIDEO)
Joe Perry collapsed right at the beginning of a Hollywood Vampires show on Sunday at the Coney Island Amphitheater in Brooklyn, New York. He’s now listed as “stable and resting.”
As the super-group, which also consists of Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp, started to rock out to a cover of David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel,” Perry sat on the edge of the drum rise before unsteadily walking offstage. In video taken at the concert, Perry can be seen dropping to the ground and then being rushed by paramedics out of the venue (see below).
The 65-year-old Aerosmith guitarist was reportedly given CPR by a New York City fireman before being taken to Coney Island Hospital. Perry’s absence was addressed by Cooper a short time later. He told the crowd, “If you notice, one of our brothers is not onstage with us. He was very sick before the show.”
Hours after being transported to the emergency room, the Twitter account for the Hollywood Vampires wrote, “Joe Perry is stable and resting. His brother Vampires and fans wish him a speedy recovery.” Gossip Cop will update as soon as we get more information about Perry’s condition. The Hollywood Vampires are slated to next perform on Tuesday at the Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio.
