Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry released from hospital

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has been released from hospital following an incident at a recent Billy Joel show in New York.

The rocker collapsed backstage and was treated by paramedics before being rushed to hospital minutes after performing “Walk This Way” with Joel at Madison Square Garden on November 10.

TMZ reports Perry was released from the hospital on November 15 and is now at home resting.

“Doing well,” the guitarist updated fans via social media on November 13 during his extended hospital stay. “Thanks for all the love and support!”

A spokesperson for the Aerosmith rocker had previously confirmed details of the incident, saying “Following a guest performance during Billy Joel's show at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and 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,” while adding that “Perry is expected to return to the road later this month.”

The guitarist is scheduled to begin a 10-date fall series of US shows in Sioux City, IA on November 30 in support of his latest solo record, “Sweetzerland Manifesto.”
