20 Epic Performer Stage Trips, Slips and Face-Plants
Being a musician puts you on different elaborate stages nightly, navigating a different space. Because of so many factors, performing can be tricky and result in the occasional accident.
There are a few different types of stage falls: the embarrassing face-plant, the laughable trip, or the more serious injury. Almost every artist has experienced one or all three kinds of falls in their career. Now that social media and camera cell phones exist, most of those moments are caught on camera and shared with the internet.
