The comedy of errors that is Guns N' Roses' Latin American tour reached a hilarious new high (or low, depending on how you look at it) when Axl Rose fell hard mid-song during a Mexico City concert. The singer was traipsing around the stage during "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" when, after singing the "Knock, knock" of the chorus, he lost his footing and toppled over. However, the impact wasn't enough to knock that ridiculous cowboy hat off his head, and Axl only missed a few notes before regaining his composure. The always-classy GN'R fans responded to the fall by laughing out loud and hurling projectiles at the downed singer.
If this was the Rose of the 1990s, he would've stormed off the stage and this concert would've been over the second after he stumbled, but this mellower (most of the time) Axl merely shook off the stagehands and continued singing. Axl's folly joins The Amp Hall of Fame of Stage Falls, joining Jimmy Buffett, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Scott Weiland, Christina Aguilera, and the entire cast of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
