    U2’s The Edge falls off stage at Vancouver concert: ‘Didn’t see the edge, I’m ok!’

    U2 performs onstage during the group's tour opener in Vancouver on Thursday.
    Don’t worry U2 fans: The Edge is fine after stumbling off an actual edge.

    The guitarist unintendedly kicked off U2’s Innocence + Experience world tour in spectacular fashion by falling off the stage during the group’s Thursday night concert in Vancouver.

    The Edge’s fall was captured on video, which shows him taking a tumble after accidentally stepping off a walkway during the band’s final song, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”


    While it seemed like the 53-year-old rocker had taken a steep fall, he assured fans via the band’s Instagram page that he wasn’t seriously injured.

    “Didn’t see the edge, I’m ok!!” he captioned a photo in which he showed off his bruised right arm.


    The Edge’s onstage tumble is notable since his bandmate Bono has only recently recovered from injuries sustained from a cycling accident in November, which has left him unable to play guitar on their current tour.

    He seems like kind of a dick, so I'm not going to get too broken up about this.

    I can't say I'm surprised. This entire shitty band follows a click track and a voice that tells them when/what to play. And if they forget/miss a cue/fall offstage, there's always the backing tracks and 5th member backstage playing keyboards and guitar.
