Joe Perry -- The Steven Tyler Shove Was an Accident

8/20/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Perry claims he never intended to shove Steven Tyler off of the stage during an Aerosmith concert in Toronto earlier this week ... no matter how intentional it may have looked on the video.

A rep for the band tells TMZ, "Joe wanted his fans to know he would never deliberately push Steven off the stage" ... noting that Joe is a "total gentleman."

We posted the footage earlier this week -- showing Tyler playfully hip-bumping Perry ... and then Perry reacting with a hip-bump of his own ... a bump that sent Tyler flying face first into the crowd.

LMAO I watched the video and it was very funny, it was all done in play. Steven even swung him around after with a smile on his face. There was no shove only a bump.

I think it was actually set up by Tyler and Perry to poke fun at Tyler's earlier tumble.

After twenty views I have surmised that Steven Tyler was not singing during this performance and that the vocals being heard are a recording. From this obvious deception I am lead to believe Steven Tyler is a fraud and a liar. I don't trust liars.

It is not Joe's fault Steven can't keep his balance. TMZ is trying to make something out of nothing as usual.

IF YOU SPEND ONE CENT TO SEE THESE SAD OLD MEN TRYING TO PERFORM THEN YOU HAVE NO TASTE IN ROCK & ROLL AND YOU BEING TAKEN FOR A FOOL. JOE & STEVE LOST IT A LONG TIME AGO AND THEY DON'T CARE ANYMORE, WHY DO YOU? And, I believe, Steven once again has a big drug problem that you'll see come out on A.I. These old guys should just give it up and enjoy the money they already made. Time to move on.

I know! Watch the video. Joe's bump is even LESS forceful than the one Steven gave him. They make it sound like he shoves him off-stage. He BARELY touches him. SETTLE DOWN!!

Steven Tyler will have greater appeal than ever when he joins American Idol.
He'll be a household name like Ozzy.
Joe Perry knows this and wants to keep Him tied to Aerosmith.
steve needs to move on and diversify.Stop singing the same old songs night after night on the road for some tired nostalgia trip.

#11, exactly. Tyler's bump was much harder, and this is a tempest in a teapot.

I get really fed up with the media blowing every little negative interaction between two 'celebrities' into a big brouhaha... what person at their work hasn't disagreed with someone, or said something rude, and then everyone just moves on? No big feud, no recriminations, just the normal interactions of people who spend hundreds of hours together.
