Post Malone's got a new injury!
He banged-up his ankle at his show in Atlanta, one month after busting a rib onstage. Post was in Atlanta for his Twelve Carat Tour when he took a wrong step up during "Psycho" and twisted his ankle and had to go down on his knees.
Malone tried to keep it going, but the pain was too much and stagehands rushed to his side to see what happened. He hobbled back up to the mic saying he twisted his ankle because of a gap in the stage meant for pyrotechnics.
The show went on, as it's nothing serious, he'll be onstage in Dallas as scheduled.
Post Malone was hospitalized and had to postpone his Twelve Carat Tour concert at TD Garden in Boston.
“Boston, I love y’all so f###### much. On tour, I usually wake up around 4 o’clock PM, and today I woke up to a cracking sound on the right side of my body,” he wrote. “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.”
In St. Louis last month, Post tripped over an area of the stage used to lower instruments and received attention from medics.
“We’re in the hospital now, but with this pain, I can’t do the show tonight,” the 27-year-old continued. “I’m so f###### sorry. Everyone’s tickets for tonight’s show will be valid for the reschedule that we’re planning right now. Once again, I’m so f###### sorry, I love y’all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I’m going to make this up to you. I love you Boston, I’ll see you soon. I’m so sorry.”
Post Malone’s Twelve Carat Toothache debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album was initially released as a 14-track album, with a deluxe version featuring two extra songs on June 7, with features from Roddy Ricch, Doja Cat, Gunna, The Weeknd, The Kid LAROI and Fleet Foxes. It's Post Malone’s fourth straight Top 5 album, but Bleeding debuted at No. 1 and spent five weeks in the top spot.
Twelve Carat Toothache was beaten by Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti, which returned to the top last week.
“You think about everything at the same time, and it’s fucking overload,” Post Malone revealed about chart success. “There’s a lot riding on the music. There’s a lot riding on just being able to keep making songs. And that’s hard to do because you’re like, ‘Fuck — I already talked about everything.’ And you kind of run out of ideas, and that’s scary shit. Trying to shove 20 to 25 songs, it doesn’t work. Talking to the label [it’s like], ‘Oh, if you have less songs, you’re not going to stream as much,’ but the whole thing is that you don’t want to compromise your art and your gut vibe on anything. I’ve made a lot of compromises, especially musically, but now I don’t feel like I want to anymore. I don’t need a No. 1; that doesn’t matter to me no more, and at a point, it did.”
