Step aside Miguel, there is now a new king of the failed stage dive. At a university performance at the University Of Kent’s Summer Ball this past Saturday, 1st June, singer Labrinth totally took out a large chunk of the crowd after a stage dive to crowd surf attempt backfired horribly.
Either he has too much faith in his fans or too much faith in his weight but, either way, no-one caught him. The pit was fairly packed so there wasn’t much room for an extra person but, when one was added, a domino effect occurred resulted in “over 50 people” getting taken out, according to a member of the audience.
Being 2013, the whole thing was caught on camera. Anyone with some mosh pit experience will know how terrifying it is when this happens, but when it’s not happening to you it’s actually pretty funny. Labrinth seemed undeterred, much like Miguel did, and continued with his performance.
Following the show, Labrinth posted an image of the stage dive moments before everything went wrong. He probably shouldn’t be claiming it, given just how much he failed.
