Incident occurred during gig with Alice Cooper's Hollywood Vampires

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry collapsed during a show with supergroup Hollywood Vampires last night (Sunday, July 11).

The group – which on the night included members Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper – were playing a gig at the Ford Amphitheater in Coney Island, New York when the incident occurred.

Video footage from the gig (scroll below to watch) sees Perry stumbling off the stage. He reportedly lost consciousness and collapsed backstage, later being transported to a nearby hospital.

Cooper told fans at the gig that Perry had been “very sick” before the show, later tweeting that Perry was “stable” and “under the best care”.

“Joe Perry is stable and resting,” a representative for the group told Rolling Stone. “His brother Vampires and fans wish him a speedy recovery.”
