There’s the age old truth what goes up must come down and at the end of A$AP Rocky‘s headline appearance at Origin Festival in Perth over New Years Eve the rap star’s moment of thanks to the crowd at the end of his set was upstaged up a punter slipping past security and making his way to the top of the stage scaffolding, loosing his grip and falling straight into the photo pit (thankfully not onto fans).
According to one festival goer “2 fans in the crowd climbed the lighting and stage trusses during A$AP Rocky’s set and were swinging from it like crazy, then one got stuck hanging by his 1 good arm and fell to the ground. It was crazy to see, I think the guy in this video is ok, he is alive at least.” Ever the showman, once the ‘Wild for the Night’ artist sussed out that the punter was at least ‘alive’ him and his stage crew brought back the party vibe closing the set with ‘F*ckin Problems’ to a hyped crowd as medical teams treated the festival punter after his close call. According to news sources the man’s injuries are serious but not life threatening.
Touring the country around the NYE holiday circuit in Australia with Origin Festival, Field Day alongside Flume, Flux Pavilion, Flight Facilities and Hermitude as well as a national tour with Wiz Khalifa A$AP Rocky is kicking off the New Year with a bang, and at least one fan with some scars to show for it.
