Associated Press reports that Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler suffered head, neck and shoulder injuries while performing in South Dakota.

Tyler fell while dancing after the sound system failed during hit “Love in an Elevator,” but joked while being loaded into a helicopter en route to an area hospital, according to the AP story, which you can read on the band’s fan site. TMZ has video of the incident here.

I recently interviewed Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, who discussed how Tyler’s previous leg injury delayed the tour earlier this summer. I’m looking into how this might impact the band’s scheduled Aug. 17 stop at Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre. More as soon as I learn something.
