Post Malone is updating fans on his recovery after an onstage accident Saturday night during a concert in St. Louis.
The “Rockstar” rapper was midway through his concerts at the Enterprise Center when, during a performance of “Circles”, he walked down a ramp that had a hole in it, used to lower his guitar, which hadn’t been covered.
Not seeing the hole, he stepped right into it, smashing his head hard on the stage before winding up flat on his back.
Post Malone made a few more die hard fans when he fell through a hole in the stage cracking 3 ribs. Fans said he came back out on stage after 10 minutes saying he was sorry & hurting so bad he was crying, then someone gave him a beer and he finished the concert.#PostMalone pic.twitter.com/eFZBn8TffU

An eyewitness told TMZ that one of Malone’s legs was “shaking uncontrollably” before medics rushed in and helped him off the stage, with Malone promising fans he’d return after he’d had a few minutes to get himself together.
Miraculously, Malone kept his promise and returned to the stage, thanking the audience for sticking around while joking about the “big-a** hole in the stage” before singing a few more songs, reportedly clutching his ribs while he sang.

“We just got back from the hospital and everything’s good,” he said.
“They gave me some pain meds and everything so we can keep kicking ass on the tour.”

According to London, Malone “didn’t break 3 ribs,” but revealed that X-rays revealed he “had bruised his ribs!”
Added London, “In true Posty fashion loving his fans he finished the show!
