According to reports in the Rapid City Journal, the sound system failed during the band’s performance of ‘Love in an Elevator.’ Reportedly, the 61-year-old Steven Tyler began dancing on the catwalk of the stage to entertain the crowd, and wound up falling off of the stage and in to the crowd. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry informed the crowd that the concert was over, as Steven Tyler had been airlifted to the hospital.

Mike Sanborn, spokesman for the Buffalo Chip Campground said:

“He was good natured about it. He was in good spirits when he got in the helicopter. He was talking and joking with the physician. It was an unfortunate end to an extraordinary evening.”

Steven Tyler was airlifted via helicopter to Rapid City Regional Hospital, and reportedly suffered head, neck and shoulder injuries in the fall. The seriousness of the injuries is not known at this time. There has been no official word from the band nor from the hospital, due to patient privacy laws.

As Spinner notes, this injury caused the band to delay recording their album.

In July, several concerts were canceled after Steven Tyler sustained an injury. Additionally, bass player Tom Hamilton took time out to recover from surgery and guitarist Brad Whitford missed concert dates when he suffered a a head injury when getting out of his Ferrari, which necessitated surgery.
