Bobby falls off stage
« on: June 03, 2016, 10:38:31 AM »
Gig had to be cut short at a festival in Switzerland.

Going by reports from people who were there, it was raining pretty heavily and he slipped at the front of the stage.

Hopefully he'll be on the mend quickly!

"Gillespie suffered what are thought to be minor back injuries when he slipped from the speaker stack into the crowd 40 minutes into Primal Scream’s show last night (June 2)."

"NME understands that Gillespie has not suffered any major injuries in the seven-foot fall and that he should be released shortly from hospital. A statement on his condition is expected soon."


Fuck hope it's nothing serious, get well Bobby!

A shame for those with tickets for shows, but luckily it wasn't more serious. Get well soon, Bobby G! See you down the front soon...
