Bruce Springsteen falls on Amsterdam stage, band rush to help
Looks like Bruce Springsteen wasn’t born to run upstairs.
The boss elicited gasps across the internet after taking an epic tumble on stage while performing in the Netherlands over the weekend.
Springsteen, 73, and the E Street Band were launching their hit song “Ghosts” at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.
Things took a turn after the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer attempted to walk up the stage stairs with a guitar around his neck, and ended up tripping and falling to the floor as fans gasped.
The “If I Should Fall Behind” lay for several seconds and bandmates immediately rushed over and helped him stand back up.
Thankfully, it appeared Springsteen wasn’t hurt during his impromptu stage dive as he rose to his feet with a smile and quipped, “Good night everybody.” The multi-time Grammy Winner then finished the concert like a champ.
A third praised the Boss for his quick recovery, writing: “He just laughed it off and delivered a fantastic gig to us all.
However, other crueler trolls on TikTok compared the legend to US President Joe Biden, whose multiple wipeouts while ascending stairs have become a running joke in conservative circles.
Springsteen and the E Street Band are currently in the middle of their 2023 worldwide tour, which began in Tampa, Florida in February before moving to Europe this past April.
Springsteen will return to the US in August, before closing out the tour in December.
