Meet ‘Mullet Boy’, the 8-year-old whose hairstyle made him a national champion
But he woke up on Saturday with “cracking noises” on the right side of his body, he said.
“I have a lot of trouble breathing and there’s like a shooting pain every time I breathe or move,” Malone written in social media posts about 30 minutes before the start of the concert. “We’re in the hospital now, but with this pain I can’t do the show tonight.”
The tickets will be valid for a rescheduled concert which is in the works, he said, apologizing for not being able to perform on Saturday. The venue, TD Garden, had announced minutes earlier that the concert was canceled “due to unforeseen circumstances” and that fans should keep their tickets for a new date.
Malone has been on the road since September 10 for his 33-city Twelve Carat Tour, promoting his fourth album, “Twelve Carat Toothache.” He had a week and five stoppages when he had the crash on stage in St. Louis.
Video footage of the incident showed the artist reaching out to grab fans’ hands while performing “Circles.” He turned and walked to center stage, then entered an open area and fell, appearing to catch himself with his upper body. He climbed out of the opening and lay down on his back. The music stopped.
Doctors helped Malone offstage, but he later returned and continued the show.

In a video shared on Twitter the next day, the rapper said the stage opening was meant to allow instruments to be lowered. He said falling through “got me pretty out of breath, made me pretty good”, adding that he was given painkillers in hospital.
Malone thanked fans for their support and promised to continue the tour.
In his Saturday post announcing the Boston show’s cancellation, he said he felt “awful, but I promise you I’ll make it up to you.”
“I love you Boston, see you soon,” he concluded.
