Post Malone dramatically falls through stage during concert
He still managed to do a few more songs.
Video footage circulating social media shows the dramatic moment Post Malone fell through the stage while performing - but still managed to perform more songs for fans.
The Rockstar rapper, whose real name is Austin Richard Post, was performing at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday night when the incident took place.
Footage showed the singer performing his track 'Circles' on a platform which stretched out from the stage when the floor appeared to give way. Fans could be heard screaming as the 27-year-old dropped to the stage floor, scrunching his face up in visible pain.

TMZ reports that the hole in the stage appeared when the star had lowered his guitar out of sight, but it hadn't been covered up again afterwards.
An eyewitness told the publication one of the singer's legs was shaking uncontrollably in the aftermath of the event.
Medics immediately rushed over to check the US star's condition, and he was escorted backstage, where he was forced to take a break from the concert.
But just 15 minutes later, Malone returned to the stage. The singer thanked fans for their patience, and joked that there was a "big a**hole" in the stage, before performing tracks 'Rockstar' and 'Cooped Up', as well as a few other hits. He even lingered onstage to sign autographs.
The singer even took to social media to apologise for missing some songs, and confirmed he would return to the US city for another, longer performance.

In a social media update on Sunday, Malone said: "We just got back from the hospital and everything's good. They gave me some pain meds and everything so we can just keep kicking ass on the tour. I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis and thank you guys so much for coming out to to the show and next time I'm around this way we're going to do a two-hour show so we can make up for the couple of songs we missed."
Fans have praised Malone for his bravery and wished him a speedy recovery.
