A Post Malone show scheduled for Saturday night in Boston was postponed at the last minute due to the rapper’s hospitalization.
Austin Richard Post, 27, who goes by his middle name on tour, said he woke up with a cracking sound on his right side. “On tour, I generally wake up around 4 o’clock PM,” he posted in an Instagram story.
The agony was “like a stabbing ache” every time he moved or breathed, and he was having trouble breathing. I’m sorry, but I have to cancel tonight’s performance because the agony is too much.
The TD Garden had just moments before stated that the show would not go on “due to unforeseen circumstances,” but that ticket holder should keep their originals for a rescheduled performance.
Post Malone collapsed through a hole in the platform during his performance in St. Louis on September 17, a week into his “Twelve Carat Tour.”
After being checked out by medical personnel, he returned to the performance. His management later revealed that the performer was taken to the hospital with damaged ribs, confirmed by X-rays.
After receiving pain medicine, Malone said in a video shared on Twitter that “everything’s good.”
As planned, he gave a performance in Boston on Friday.
The rapper recently said that concert tickets purchased for this Saturday’s gig would be honored during a make-up performance. He stated he felt “terrible, but I swear I’m going to make this up to you.”
“I love you Boston, I’ll see you soon,” he penned.
