Not Even A Nasty Stage Fall Can Stop AIRBOURNE

While shirtless, sweaty, and soloing his way through the encore of “Running Wild” at his band’s September 22 show in Kamloops, British Columbia, AIRBOURNE lead singer and guitarist Joel O’Keeffe suffered quite the mishap.


While feverishly headbanging and slaying his instrument, the frontman fell off the stage. While O’Keeffe escaped serious injury, he did break a few ribs and tore a few ligaments in his foot.


Despite taking a nasty tumble, O’Keefe finished the show, playing while seated in a chair.


The fall didn’t sideline the tough-as-nails O’Keeffe or his band. AIRBOURNE haven’t canceled a single tour date nor do they plan to, proving that AIRBOURNE have completely sold their bodies, minds, and souls to rock ‘n’ roll.
