One word: OUCH!
Royal Blood’s Twitter account posted this video today showing bassist Mike Kerr taking a nasty fall while performing with the caption, “First show back I fractured a rib on stage and no one noticed. Thank god it was filmed.”
The clip was likely from the duo’s gig in Brighton back in April 2017, their first show in over 18 months. (Kerr shows off a gross bruise the day after the show here.) Up until now, video of the incident didn’t surface, but hooray for archival footage?
Of course, if you’re looking to see a Royal Blood performance sans injury, they were on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this week and performed “I Only Lie When I Love You.”
