AXL ROSE Falls On Stage At France's HELLFEST; Video Available

Video footage of GUNS N' ROSES lead singer Axl Rose falling on stage while attempting to jump onto a platform during the band's June 16 performance at the Hellfest festival in Clisson, France can be seen below.

Rose previously fell on May 20 while leaving the stage after performing the final song of the band's set in Liverpool, England. Axl was apparently walking backwards and waving the crowd goodbye after the group finished playing "Paradise City" at the Echo Arena and tripped on what appeared to be either a piece of equipment or a set of steps that led from the main floor to the drum-riser floor.

As previously reported, Rose underwent treatment for a suspected hematoma (a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel) after bruising his leg in Russia earlier last month. The singer was reportedly injured during a wild weekend of partying with his bandmates, celebrating their two sold-out shows in Moscow.

In addition sole original member Axl Rose, the current lineup of GUNS N' ROSES includes guitarists Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
