A short fan-filmed video clip of Glenn Danzig making his way back onto the stage after reportedly falling off while singing the song "How the Gods Kill" at the opening concert of the current DANZIG tour, on Tuesday (October 23) in Baltimore, Maryland, can be viewed below.

According to Rock N Roll Experience's Bob Suehs, who attended the concert, Glenn "was in a bad mood after the fall — he cut the show short and he nixed the MISFITS set with Doyle and was yelling at Todd Youth [guitar] the rest of the night telling him to slow down his playing. The story I was told from a security guard was that Glenn dislocated his shoulder, but I can't confirm that. However, he was hurt badly because he did not meet fans after the show... he ran directly to the bus and didn't come out."

As previously reported, tonight's (October 25) DANZIG show at The Worcester Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts has been cancelled due to Glenn Danzig's shoulder injury. There is no word yet on a possible makeup date.

DANZIG's current tour is in support of "The Lost Tracks of Danzig", the two-CD set that was released May 29, as well as Glenn's limited-edition book "Drukija, Contessa of Blood", loosely based on the legend of 17th century vampire Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and illustrated by long time collaborator Simon Bisley.

"The Lost Tracks" is comprised of 26 previously unreleased tracks that span Danzig's entire career and were originally recorded during the band's seven-album "arc" that began with 1988's "Danzig".

The show in Baltimore was great. Sucks to see Glenn fall and the Misfits set nixed, but it was still an awesome show from Danzig and also Doyle.

The title of this article is misleading. The video is not of Glenn Danzig falling OFF the stage, it's of him getting back ONTO the stage, after having fallen off (as the first sentence says).

I was there, and didn't see him fall, but I was among the large number of people who were there specifically for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Glenn Danzig singing Misfits songs. We were awfully disappointed that he didn't even do ONE Misfits song.

He did still kick ass, though, so it was not a TOTAL letdown. The fact that most of us were not even aware that he fell off and got hurt, until we heard about it after the show, definitely says something about his dedication and showmanship.

lol rk, that hit is an absolute classic. I applaud him for goin on.

Best show injury I ever saw was the singer for Stabbing Westward, who took a backward, spiral, dive at a festvial show. He landed in the nomans land between the stage and the crowd. You could hear that body meets hardwood sound -while- the band was playing....Amazing fall--from waaay up....He came back onto the stage plus a black eye and bloody nose and played the whole set.

Now Playing: Katatonia - "Rusted"
I've always hoped someone caught it on film but haven't seen it yet.
