Rapper Post Malone has assured his fans he’s fine after he pulled it off during a live show in the US.
The 27-year-old was performing his smash hit Circles and had just shaken hands with some of his fans as he walked to the other side of the small circular stage when he fell through a hole in the stage.
Footage of the incident posted online shows the rapper writhing in pain after the fall.
Doctors can be seen rushing to help the musician, who was screaming while holding his ribs.
One of the venue staff can be heard trying to get on stage as a fan screams “Oh my God”.
The Grammy-nominated star was 12 songs into her 22-song setlist when the incident happened.
One concertgoer claims the star was in “too much pain” to leave the stage, so medics had to treat him in front of the crowd.
He was eventually taken backstage by medics and miraculously returned to finish his performance.
He apologized to his fans for the delay.
“I want to thank you for your patience and I’m very sorry that there was a big hole in the stage,” he said after his return.
“I want to say thank you to everyone for hanging in there and I want to say thank you to everyone, I have the best fans in the world.
“No matter what we’ve been doing, I’m going to keep trying to kick ass and keep going to make this damn tour great.”
The rapper later took to Twitter to apologize to his fans for missing a few songs.
“We just got back from the hospital and everything is fine. They gave me pain meds and everything so we can keep kicking ass on tour.”
Post Malone is scheduled to perform in Perth next year as part of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Optus Stadium concert.
