Post Malone visited Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Tuesday night (Sept. 27), happier and healthier after a health scare earlier in the week. He was eager to play.
Questions surrounded Malone’s condition after he was hospitalized with an injury going into the concert.
The “Rockstar” rapper had a residual effect from going through an open trap door on stage during his Twelve Carat Tour stop in St. Louis earlier in the month, which caused him to awaken with “stabbing pain” if he “breathed or moved.”
He cited this as the reason he had to postpone his Boston performance on September 24 on social media.
Malone seems to be unaffected in Ohio.
Postie addressed the issue during a break in the show.
“Unfortunately, I had to cancel my last performance. Because I really busted ass over there in the middle of the stage,” he added, pointing at the location with his free hand while carrying a beer. In a fan-produced video, he said, “And I woke up and my ribs were like breaking and f***ing up and I couldn’t really breathe very well.”
But we were given a few days to relax, and they gave me some supplies to use. I’m coming to f***ing kick some asses, therefore.
He said, “Thank you for your patience, your encouragement, and your love.” He then started tearing through his set, which included more than two dozen songs.
In addition to making a full recovery in the Land, Posty honored the Cavs supporters by donning a replica Darius Garland jersey as a nod to the NBA team’s underappreciated point guard.
Posty may be healing from his bumps, but his career is still going strong thanks to his Twelve Carat Toothache and Doja Cat collaboration, “I Like You (A Happier Song),” which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Airplay list (dated Oct. 1). The accomplishment gives each of the players their fifth career No. 1 on the list.
Twelve Carat Toothache, his fourth studio album, debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 2 in June after two weeks at the top.
Wednesday’s destination is PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Sept. 28).
