Perry’s publicists said in a statement that the 68-year-old felt short of breath after the Saturday performance at Madison Square Garden. Paramedics backstage gave Perry oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to the hospital.

The statement said Perry is expected to return to the road this month.
Perry had joined the 69-year-old Joel on stage for a rendition of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way.”
