UPDATE (5:30 p.m. eastern)

TMZ has the best video, so far, of the Tyler “fall” from last night.

Click here to check it out, so you can decide for yourself if Perry’s “push” was intentional or not. Hmmm…



"We're seeing things in a different way / And Joe knows it ain't his."

- revised lyrics to "Livin' On The Edge" last night in Toronto

Never a dull moment in Aerosmithville these days, huh?

Steven Tyler either took a fall off stage last at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto or was pushed by guitarist Joe Perry.

During the second song in the set - “Love In An Elevator” - Tyler had reportedly hip-checked Perry lightly, who then looked over his shoulder at the singer before backing into him, causing Tyler to tumble off the catwalk and into the crowd.

Perry helped pull Tyler back up on stage. “It ain’t gonna happen again, baby,” said Tyler. “You’ll pay for that, my brother.” Toronto’s Globe & Mail newspaper reported that Perry was seen smirking over the incident.

We’ll keep our eyes open for fan-filmed footage to see if anything shows up online.

Ironically, the next two songs in the set were “Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees),” and “Livin’ On The Edge” - the spill led to a lyric change in “Livin’” - "We're seeing things in a different way/And Joe knows it ain't his."

Flashback to South Dakota last year, when Tyler fell off stage, leaving him with a broken collarbone, resulting in the cancellation of a bunch of summer tour dates.

Things between Tyler and Perry have been tense for much of the last year; the latest public display has been over the possibility of Tyler becoming a judge on American Idol, which he announced to the press after a show in Las Vegas a few weeks ago (see stories here and here for more details).
