Luke Bryan Needs Stitches After Fall From Stage

His scary tumble in Charlotte, N.C., captured on video.

The life of a performer is filled with hazards, particularly the precarious front of the stage and pit below. Luke Bryan got a scary dose of that Thursday (May 29) when he took a nasty tumble off the stage in Charlotte, N.C.

During a cover of Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us,” Luke took a step forward to find there was nothing below his feet and plummeted into the space between stage and audience barrier (video below). Security and stage hands quickly rushed to his aid, and he sat on the lip of the stage and made light of the fact that he’s fallen more than once in North Carolina.

“The last time I was in North Carolina, I busted my ass,” Luke told the audience. He managed to finish the tune after his fall, but didn’t escape injury-free. He tweeted later, “I’m good. Few stitches.” Then later, “My socks scream liberty. Go USA.”

Tonight, Luke heads to Bristow, Va., for his next show.
