Footage posted online by fans showed Perry staggering off stage mid-song, while the band continued to play. He was taken to hospital where he is said to be in a stable condition." He sat down during the song and then walked off behind the drum set," Kevin Phalon, an audience member, told NBC News.

 

"After that, you could see a whole bunch of backstage people run off to the left side of the stage. He is stable right now, with family and is under the best care," it said. A tweet from Perry's Twitter account thanked fans for their concern. Alice Cooper also tweeted his thanks to "everyone asking about our brother @JoePerry".
