Falling on stage is the worst. It's really hard to look cool when you slip, trip, drop or otherwise eat it in front of thousands of people. It's even worse when you actually get injured trying to pull off an awesome stage dive or dance routine.
Just ask Florence + the Machine singer Florence Welch, who busted her foot jumping off the stage at Coachella over the weekend. "I'm so sorry to say, that after what was one of my favourite shows ever at Coachella, I have discovered I have broken my foot from leaping off the stage," she wrote in a post that included an x-ray of her injury.
So, for the time being, she's going to have to cool it on the band's upcoming "stripped back" shows. The good news is that Flo is not alone. Biting it happens to the best and brightest all the time. Here are 11 times feet just failed.
