AEROSMITH's was injured STEVEN TYLER after falling from the stage during a concert at the STURGIS Motorcycle Rally. TYLER, 61, "fell while entertaining the crowd by dancing around after the sound system failed during the song 'Love In an Elevator,'" MIKE SANBORN, a spokesman for the BUFFALO CHIP CAMPGROUND told THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.
"He does a lot of dancing on the stage and he does a lot of stuff with his mike stand. He put his stand down and twirled around and stepped backwards off the stage," SANBORN said. "He was good natured about it. He was in good spirits when he got in the helicopter. He was talking and joking with the physician."
TYLER was taken by helicopter to an area hospital. TYLER suffered minor head and neck injuries, as well as a shoulder injury, but it wasn’t immediately clear how serious that was.
