Boy George Suffers Close Call

Boy George apparently had a brush with death when a 62lb mirror ball came crashing down to the stage during a theater soundcheck.

According to the London Sun, the four-foot ornament brushed his ear and landed on his left shoulder and back, knocking the singer to the floor. The Culture Club singer was treated for bruises and shock at the scene, but performed that night as scheduled. The show, at the Bournemouth International Centre in Dorset, England, was part of the group's current U.K. tour.

The disco ball was said to be one of three used by the band as a regular part of its staging. The other two were taken down following the mishap.
