We all know that musicians, especially those in bands, get a little too into their shows. We’ve seen our fair share of musicians taking to social media to reveal that they managed to hurt themselves several time in some shape, way, or form during a tour. During their stop in Pomona, CA on Motionless In White and Devil Wears Prada’s co-headlining “Apollo X Tour,” The Word Alive’s Telle Smith definitely took the cake when it came to injuries during a show.
According to social media posts by both the band and Smith himself, he stage dove which resulted in a broken rib, another rib was fractured, and a bone in his spine was broken. But while most bands will think about cancelling the rest of their tour due to the major injuries, The Word Alive kept on going. Let’s put this in perspective: The injury happened on Nov. 14 and today (Nov. 19), the incident reached the web.
Talk about dedication.
Check out some tweets from Smith, and the band, below about what happened that night in Pomona as well as a fan shot video of that night. No word on whether the video shows what exactly led to Smith’s injuries.
Currently, there is only one day left on the Apollo X Tour, tomorrow (Nov. 20) night’s stop at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis, MN.
