Black Veil Brides Star Falls From Balcony At Gig, Fractures Ribs
Rocker Andy Biersack is recovering after fracturing three ribs in a balcony fall during Black Veil Brides' concert in Hollywood on Saturday (18Jun11).
The frontman was clambering across a balcony at the Hollywood & Highland shopping mall when he lost his grip and fell.
Despite the obvious pain experienced as he collided with the stage, Biersack finished the gig.
He later tweeted the extent of his injuries, writing, "Jumped from the balcony and broke my rib... heading to the hospital... I'll be back soon."
He later added, "Shattered 3 ribs on my left side".
The group is touring to promote new album Set the World on Fire. Biersack will miss a handful of shows, according to the group's management.
