Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler was taken to the hospital last night after falling off the back of the stage in the middle of a concert in Sturgis, South Dakota. Reports say that Tyler was attempting to entertain the crowd after technical difficulties with the sound system. When the 61 year old rocker got up the crowd cheered supportively knowing he was okay. He was then taken back stage and guitarist Joe Perry later informed the audience that he had to be taken to the hospital. Mike Sanborn, spokesman for the concert venue spoke about Tyler’s good nature regarding the situation, saying “he was in good spirits when he got in the helicopter. He was talking and joking with the physician.” Don’t count on Tyler being out for too long. The band is scheduled to hit major cities in the next couple of months across the country.
