Bruce Springsteen takes a terrible fall
During his recent show in Amsterdam, Springsteen suffered a downfall while performing for his fans, per Daily mail. The 73-year-old had turned to climb the stairs to where his backup was positioned but tripped halfway.
Springsteen, dressed all in black, was still holding his guitar when he fell and rolled onto his back in full view of the fans.
His concerned colleagues quickly rushed to help him, with one pulling out his instrument as they pulled Bruce to his feet.
It was unclear if the stress of his performance led to the downfall or if it was just accidental. Luckily, Bruce was unhurt from the fall, as he smiled after being lifted off the ground.
After that, he addressed the crowd, saying, “Good night, everyone!” then raised his hand and started a new song.
He has already faced backlash over ticket prices
Bruce is on the road for his last tour, “Springsteen and E Street Band”, tour 2023.
There are 37 shows on his tour, spread across 32 cities. Landgraaf, the Netherlands; Zürich, Switzerland; and Birmingham, UK, will be its locations.
While attendance at the venues he has performed has been excellent, there were previously many complaints about ticket prices.
In November 2022, Springsteen responded to fan backlash, saying his tickets were affordable.
“They are in this affordable range. We got these tickets that will go for that [higher] price somewhere anyway. The ticket broker or someone is going to take that money. I go, ‘Hey, why shouldn’t this money go to the guys who are going to be up there sweating three hours a night for this?’ “, He said, according to the New York Post.
Bruce Springsteen slammed for hosting show in disaster area
The singer recently faced another round of criticism for always holding his gig in Italy’s stricken Emilia-Romagna region, per Daily mail.
The region on the northern side of the country was inundated by torrential rains, causing several deaths, landslides and broken banks. In addition, several towns and villages were left isolated by the effects of the downpour, which destroyed several properties.
Some local leaders felt the performance was disrespectful to those still reeling from the tragedy. Up to 50,000 spectators were expected. However, due to severe flooding, many were unable to do so.
Italian TV presenter Tiziana Ferrario commented on Springsteen’s acting on Twitter, saying, “I love Bruce Springsteen, but given the casualties and mud-swamped towns, Ferrara’s gig feels out of tune.”
He added: “Once [upon a time]you were shoveling and helping who was buried in the mud rather than mindlessly singing and dancing in the same area.
Bruce Springsteen gets his vacation
