Post Malone has fans concerned after nearly falling apart on stage.
The chart-topping singer was performing his single “I Fall Apart” during his “Runaway Tour” at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday when he appeared to break down on stage. In the video clip, which went viral on social media, Post fell to the ground before tumbling over himself. His voice wavered as he struggled to get back up.

I’ve been a big fan of post malone since early 2016 and seeing these videos of him recently are worrying me. Yes, he’s an outgoing funny character but I’ve never seen him like this in videos. He looks as if he needs help pic.twitter.com/OG8PcgkHq5

However, another fan noted that this could have been part of this particular performance and that Post regularly gets low to the ground when he performs. He seemed to be doing fine later in the evening. A video shows him speaking to fans and signing autographs after the show.
he always gets super low to the ground during his performances. he tripped/lost balance & continued with the song. i know he drinks a lot & all but he’s completely fine after the show!! pic.twitter.com/Rl4tbijzBp

In his recent GQ Style cover story, Post addressed the drug-related deaths of his peers including Mac Miller, Lil Peep, and Juice WRLD. “That could have been me,” he said.
He was also asked whether he was getting help for his mental health problems. “I am, now–I’m trying,” he said. “It’s difficult. Through my songs, I can talk about whatever I want. But sitting here, face-to-face, it’s difficult.”
Post is currently on his “Runaway Tour,” which runs through March 21. He also plans to release a new album before the year is over.
