Joe Perry, Aerosmith Guitarist, 'Stable' After Collapsing on Stage

Joe Perry is back in the saddle again — or at least he will be on Friday.

The Aerosmith guitarist, who collapsed onstage during a concert by his side project the Hollywood Vampires last week, will return to play with the group on Friday, his bandmate Alice Cooper tweeted on Thursday.

Perry will remain with the group, which also includes Johnny Depp, for the remainder of the tour, Cooper added.

"Joe is back! @JoePerry returns to the @hollywoodvamps tour tomorrow, 7/22 & will be with us thru the end!" Cooper wrote.
