Remember that time when you were walking down the street, coffee in one hand and phone in the other? The sun was shining, people were smiling – and are one or two of them even singing? All seemed right with the world. Then you tripped and fell straight over onto your face as your coffee, phone and dignity spilled everywhere.
We know: tragedy. But there’s one thing that would definitely have made the situation a whole other level of terrible: doing it onstage in front of THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
It doesn’t matter how famous you are or how much swagger you have, when gravity wants the ground and your bum to have a meeting we are all powerless. Even Queen of Pop Stars Beyonce isn’t immune from taking a tumble down some stairs when on stage (while doing one of her fiercest dance moves, to be fair).

We’ve gathered together some of the worst – by which we mean the absolute BEST – on stage blunders from the likes of Olly Murs (also betrayed by stairs), Ed Sheeran (forsaken by his speaker stacks), Miley Cyrus (‘accidentally’ dropped by her dancers) and even U2’s Bono (fell over just by being Bono).
There’s plenty more where that came from so go ahead and check out the video montage above for some major guilty lolz and just remember: tragedy is when you fall and spill frappucino all over yourself, comedy is Beyonce and Kelly Rowland completely ignoring Michelle Williams falling on her face.
