Rage Against the Machine’s guitarist Tom Morello was by accident tackled by a security guard pursuing a fan who jumped on stage throughout the band’s concert in Canada over the weekend.
Video captured by a concert-goer shows Morello, 58, even falling off stage briefly because of this of the direct hit contained in the packed Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Saturday night.
The unruly fan will be seen running up one side of the stage, as a security guard chases him. However the guard then runs into Morello — as a substitute of the fan — and sends the guitarist flying off the stage, in response to the footage.
It took about ten seconds after the hit for lead singer Zack de la Rocha to note that one in every of his bandmates was down, yelling repeatedly “delay, delay, delay” because the music stopped. De la Rocha was sitting down throughout the show because he suffered a leg injury during a previous concert.
Morello popped back up after which pumped his arms within the air as fans went wild.
An animated Morello following the tackle seemed unharmed because the band restarted its final song of the night, “Killing within the Name.”
It appears the fan who caused the stir was eventually scooped up by security off stage.
