Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was reportedly forced to leave the stage and taken to to the hospital tonight (July 10) during a concert by his Alice Cooper-fronted side project the Hollywood Vampires. He is believed to be in critical condition.

Although there has been no official word on what happened, there have been numerous posts on social media from those attending the show at the Coney Island Amphitheater in Brooklyn, N.Y. As you can see from the video below, Perry sits down on the drum riser while appearing to have difficulty playing, and then leaves the stage mid-song under his own power. Billboard says this took place during the first song. Unverified tweets from fans at the scene claim Perry was then treated backstage by emergency medics.

PIX11 is reporting that he was taken to Coney Island Hospital and cites police sources as saying he is in critical condition, with Page Six saying he
suffered a cardiac arrest
at approximately 9:30PM.

According to one account, the band continued playing, and Cooper told the crowd, “‘If you notice one of our brothers is not onstage with us, he was very sick before the show.”

Wow. Hope he makes it. Supposedly Aerosmith were planning a farewell tour and its something Perry has wanted for years. Tyler to into his solo career and has dragged that on for years.

Yeah I was quietly dreaming of an Aerosmith/GNR double headline tour in Australia next year!

I saw Aerosmith a few years ago and it was one of the best shows I've seen for sure.

Looks like Alice is saying he's in stable condition, thankfully.

Thank God. I guess one thing isn't related to another but there's been so many music losses already this year. Obviously a win for his family and friends too.
