Perry, 68, was said to be experiencing shortness of breath and "looked terrible" right after the show, according to a statement released by his agent. "He was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital," the agent said, adding that he is now "alert and responsive."
Fans quickly expressed distress over the incident and extended their prayers and well wishes for Joe.

It isn't the first time Perry has been rushed to hospital after a gig. He also collapsed on stage in 2016 during a Coney Island show with his group the Hollywood Vampires which features singer Alice Cooper and actor Johnny Depp.
The guitar legend recently released a brand new single "Quake", a collaboration with Gary Cherone of Extreme.
