Perry surprised the crowd when he joined Joel for a cover of "Walk This Way" during the Saturday evening show and later needed medical assistance in his dressing room.

The guitar and rock music legend was apparently wheeled out of Madison Square Garden on a stretcher last night just minutes after performing with Billy Joel at the famed arena.

Perry previously suffered a medical emergency while onstage at a New York Hollywood Vampires show in 2016, suffering from dehydration and exhaustion, EW reported. "Perry is expected to return to the road later this month". Paramedics gave him oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before they were able to take him out of the packed venue to the hospital.

Perry had to cancel a Sunday appearance at a rock fantasy camp in Florida.

"I look around the stage and he's (Perry) gone", Alice told Rolling Stone at the time.

Perry has a long, well-documented history with drug and alcohol abuse, though it is not clear if either played a role in his collapse.
