Post Malone Hospitalized After ‘Stabbing Pain’ Forced Concert Cancellation

Rapper Post Malone checked himself into the hospital after experiencing abdomen pain during his “Twelve Carat Tour” over the weekend.

“Boston, I love y’all so f—king much,” the “Sunflower” performer, 27, wrote on social media Saturday. “On tour, I usually wake up around 4 o’clock PM, and today I woke up to cracking sounds on the right side of my body.”

He continued: “I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before. I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s like a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move. We’re in the hospital now, but with this pain, I can’t do the show tonight.”

The musician, whose real name is Austin Post, didn’t elaborate on his condition or reveal any medical diagnosis. But the pain is likely connected to the on-stage tumble he took in St. Louis on Sept. 17 at the Enterprise Center. That accident came during his performance of “Circles” when he slipped and fell into the open section of a specialty-stage.

Post Malone’s painful tumble in St. Louis has been pretty well-documented on social media, with clips from different angles surfacing online. Fans had sent their well wishes to the “White Iverson” singer all week.

In a separate Twitter video released last week, Post explained that the whole is there so band equipment can seamlessly leave the stage. Post noted at the time that the fall “winded [him] pretty good,” but he received pain medications. “Everything is good,” he said before promising St. Louis fans a two-hour show next time he returns to town.

Malone kicked off his current tour on Sept. 10 in Omaha, Nebraska. It is scheduled to conclude Nov. 16 in Los Angeles. His next scheduled concert is on Sept. 27 in Cleveland, Ohio. At this time, it is unknown if the concert will go on as scheduled.
