Personal Injury and Wardrobe Malfunction for The Band Perry
Performance fuels fan frenzy.
WARNING: Being a big-time country music star can be hazardous to your health . . . but it sure is fun! Ask The Band Perry!
Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry whipped the crowd at Ontario, Canada’s Boots and Hearts Music Festival into such a frenzy that petite Kimberly found herself practically crushed against the barrier between the band and their enthusiastic fans.
However, the excitement of the performance and the audience had her adrenaline so high that she didn’t even realize she had suffered a bruise and an abrasion on her leg until after the show. What she did notice, though, while still onstage, was that the dress she was wearing had been ripped in the chaos. So, she did what any awesome country star would do—she made it some lucky fan’s souvenir.
“It all happened so quickly that I didn’t even realize that my leg had been hurt. I just noticed the rip in my dress and saw that part of it was just hanging by a thread, so I ripped off the rest and tossed it out into the crowd. It was one of those sweaty, primitive stage moments I live for,” said Kimberly.
More than 28,000 country music lovers packed Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, making it The Band Perry’s largest crowd for north of the border.
