Tyler Joseph Slips Over Drumstick During Cleveland Concert
Joseph was running across the stage when he slipped over the drumstick and had a messy fall. The musical duo then shared an update on their Twitter, posting a video in which Dun confirmed that he had dropped a stick over which the 33 year old frontman stumbled, hurting his knee and ankle.
“I don’t do this very often – it happens every once in a while – I dropped a stick. And I thought, ‘Surely, it’s right there, it should be fine,” Dun, 34, tells fans in the clip, adding, “Two songs later, Tyler found the stick… with his foot. [He] twists his ankle and goes down and slices his knee open.”
He continued, “And so I really hurt my best friend tonight, and I feel terrible. So I’m going to buy you dinner or something!” Fortunately, the injury does not seem very serious, as Joseph was seen in the video resting on a sofa and even making the peace sign with his hands by the end.
