The following day, the “Better Now” artist addressed the incident in a Twitter video, explaining how there was a “big ass hole” during the set, which caused him to fall through.

He continued, “I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s, like, a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move. We’re in the hospital now, but with this pain, I can’t do the show tonight. I’m so f—king sorry.”
After he described the newfound pain he was feeling, Malone reassured fans that he was planning a new concert date to repay them, noting that he felt “terrible” for canceling the show.
“Everyone’s tickets for tonight’s show will be valid for the reschedule we’re planning right now,” he added. “Once again, I’m so f—king sorry. I love y’all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I’m going to make this up to you. I love you, Boston. I’ll see you soon.”
