News reaching us indicates that Austin Richard Post, known professionally as Post Malone fell through a trap door onstage at his show in St. Louis.
The incident happened Saturday night in St. Louis at the Enterprise Center halfway through the concert, where he was performing “Circles.”
Post Malone fall: What happened?
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the 27 year old American rapper was performing “circles” when he tripped into an uncovered hole that had been used to lower equipment below the stage.
Post Malone landed on his ribcage and laid on the stage for several minutes as medics attended to him.
The rapper was eventually able to stand up and walk off the stage with assistance, but asked fans to give him a few minutes to collect himself, but clearly, everyone was concerned and some doubtful he’d even return.
Following a 15-minute delay, Post Malone did indeed resume the concert, albeit for only an abbreviated set during which he continuously held his ribs.

Post thanked the crowd for hangin’ in there and told them there was a “big-ass hole in the stage” and even apologized — not necessary.
He finished out the show and even stayed after to sign a few autographs.
Post Malone kicked off his “Twelve Carat Gold Tour” last weekend in Omaha, with dates planned through the middle of November.
