Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry was taken out of Madison Square Garden on a stretcher Saturday night (November 10th) after appearing as a guest performer at Billy Joel‘s ongoing monthly residence at the famed New York City venue. This morning, Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive.
Perry is due to begin a tour of 10 dates later this month, according to his website. A spokesperson for Perry said he will not appear at a scheduled performance Sunday in Florida but is expected to return to the road later this month. A publicist for Joel declined to comment.
