Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry caused concern when he abruptly staggered offstage and was taken to the hospital during a Hollywood Vampires performance in Brooklyn. Despite initial worries about Perry’s condition, Aerosmith bandmate Tom Hamilton tweeted an encouraging update for fans.
“Thankfully, Joe seems to be better than we all first feared,” wrote Hamilton. “Here’s hoping he’s back on stage soon doing what he loves to do!”
Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler also offered well wishes to Perry.
“I love you @joeperry…,” he tweeted. “Feel the millions of prayers coming your way… We all love you… Sending white light and all that I got your way.”
Hollywood Vampires bandmate Alice Cooper previously announced that Perry was in “stable” condition and “under the best care.” Tonight’s show in Kettering, OH, is slated to go on as planned, and bandmates intend for Perry to rejoin them once his health troubles are under control. Cooper thanked fans for their support.
