November 14, 2018

Following his collapse backstage at a Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry gave fans via his Twitter an update regarding his current health. "Doing well, thanks for all the love and support!" Perry says.

TMZ reported that Perry had been dealing with lung congestion for many weeks, and it had come full force following his onstage cameo with Billy Joel.

In 2016, Perry had collapsed backstage after a rehearsal with the Hollywood Vampires, with fears believing he had gone into cardiac arrest. It was revealed later that it was due to dehydration and exhaustion.
