Joe Perry Hospitalized Following Onstage Cardiac Arrest

Music News Joe Perry

There’s some scary news out of Brooklyn, as last night guitarist Joe Perry of legendary hard-rock band Aerosmith collapsed backstage after suffering a cardiac arrest at the Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk.

Perry was playing with his new Hollywood Vampires project, which also features Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper. After stumbling during the show’s first song, Perry sat on the drum kit and continued playing, then walked off stage and collapsed. While members of the NYPD and FDNY helped Perry off the stage, the Hollywood Vampires continued the show.

However, as of this morning, the NYPD has listed Perry as “in stable condition.”

Official Twitter accounts for Perry and the Hollywood Vampires also shared updates on the musician hours after the incident.
