Sunday night’s Hollywood Vampires gig at the Ford Amphitheater on the Cony Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, New York featured a scary moment when guitarist/Aerosmith legend Joe Perry collapsed onstage.
He was immediately rushed to a hospital where he remained for the rest of the night – while the band, featuring singer Alice Cooper and guitarist Johnny Depp, among other musicians, finished the gig.
After the show, updates were provided via social media and thankfully, Perry appears to be on the mend after what’s being called cardiac arrest:
Joe Perry is stable and resting. His brother Vampires and fans wish him a speedy recovery.
