(hennemusic) Axl Rose was rock-rock-rockin' on the stage floor in Mexico City after the Guns N' Roses frontman slipped and fell during the show.
While performing the Bob Dylan track, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," Axl was slowly wandering across the stage when he slipped and fell awkwardly. Rose continued to sing through the incident and, as a roadie rushed to help him up, Axl waved him off and climbed back to his feet, to the applause of the crowd.
The show was the first of back-to-back gigs at the Sports Palace in Mexico City, with another two to follow this weekend, including Guadalajara (Sat) and Monterrey (Sun). See video of the fall here
(Billboard) While straddling her flaming piano and the piano bench at Houston's Toyota Center, Lady Gaga lost her balance and took a nasty fall.
Quite impressively, she never stopped singing her "Born This Way" track "You and I." You can watch the fall here.
It looks like nothing major, as Halford had planted the bike and it was standing still at the time; Rob appears to simply fall over to the left with the bike as it goes down.
The singer quickly rights the bike and the band launch into "Hell Bent For Leather" during their encores. more on this story

(TMZ) Lindsay Lohan says she was NOT loaded on grandpa's cough medicine -- aka booze, hooch, or liquor -- when she busted her butt in NYC ... telling TMZ flat-out, "I was NOT drinking, nor do I drink!"
LiLo is on the defensive after being photographed going down hard outside the Motor City Bar on Wednesday -- because some people had the audacity to think Lindsay Lohan falling down outside a bar may mean she fell off the wagon.
But that's not the case ... because Lohan tells TMZ, "I was with my brother, sister and friends. I was making a joke. They're trying to make something out of nothing." Lindsay adds, "Just because I'm out doesn't mean I'm drinking." more on this story

"I said, 'The two front bottom ones?' He said, 'Yeah.' I go, 'We've got a problem...' He's got a show to do on Thursday." more on this story
The singer smashed two teeth and sustained a black eye when he took a tumble in his hotel shower in Paraguay on Tuesday, forcing the postponement of Aerosmith's concert in Asuncion. But the band delivered their rescheduled 17-song show on Wednesday night – with Tyler, 63, even playing harmonica despite the pain in his mouth.
The official reason for his collapse was given as an attack of food poisoning. But the singer told the Today Show that he knew many people would assume it was drink-related, following the spectacular dive in 2009 which forced Aerosmith on hiatus and sent him into rehab more on this story
