STURGIS, South Dakota - Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was reportedly taken to a hospital after falling from stage during a concert at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in western South Dakota.
Tyler, 61, fell while entertaing the crowd by dancing around after the sound system failed during the song "Love In an Elevator," concert-goer Lance Yellow Robe told the Rapid City Journal.
Tyler was on the stage's catwalk when he tottered backward and fell, Yellow Robe said. Security rushed to help him and the crowd cheered when Tyler got back up.
Tyler was taken backstage and around 12:15 a.m., Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry came out to tell the audience Tyler was being taken to the hospital and that the show would not go on.
Rapid City Regional Hospitial co-ordinator Rod Brandhagen initially told The Associated Press that Tyler was on his way there early Thursday. He later declined to give any additional details.
