TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler may be "American Idol"-bound, but he's taken another tumble on stage -- this time in Toronto.

Aerosmith was performing at Toronto's Air Canada Center on Tuesday when, according to media reports, guitarist Joe Perry backed into Tyler as they played "Love in an Elevator," which sent the frontman off the catwalk and into the crowd.

CBC News said Tyler landed on his feet without injury, and was helped back on stage by fans and Perry.

The incident recalled a similar one last year when Tyler broke his shoulder after falling off the stage while singing the same song during a show in South Dakota. The band was forced to cancel the rest of its tour, and Tyler's band mates threatened to replace him with a new singer.

The Globe and Mail newspapers added that Tyler, once back on the Toronto stage, told a smiling Perry and his cheering fans: "It ain't gonna happen again, baby." Aerosmith is making its way through a 42-date North American tour.
