August Alsina Passes Out, Falls Off Stage During NYC Performance
Tonight August Alsina fans witnessed a scary scene when the singer passed out and fell off stage during a performance on his Testimony Tour. The incident occurred at Irving Plaza in New York City when, just a little more than halfway into his show, August collapsed and fell off the edge of the stage. Security guards grabbed the 22 year old and rushed him backstage to await EMTs to transport him to a hospital for medical attention while other venue staff ushered concert attendees out of the building.
Once security guards cleared the venue, numerous fans gathered outside where three ambulances were parked. A few female fans shed tears as they waited for emergency workers to wheel August out of the back of the venue. And after about 30 minutes or so, security asked the gathering crowd to make way for EMTs to usher the singer into the ambulance.
So far there’s no word on what may have caused August to pass out, nor any update on his condition. Having been in attendance at the concert, nothing seemed out of the ordinary during August’s performance until he made a quick wardrobe change and returned to stage without his glasses, his eyes appearing a bit tired. August launched his 20-city tour on August 14 and has been going nonstop ever since. He was slated to perform at Bogarts in Cincinnati tomorrow night. We’re sending him well wishes for a quick recovery.
