Blake Shelton Falls Onstage While Performing: ‘Yes, I Had Been Drinking’
Blake Shelton joined a long list of slightly clumsy stars when he fell during his show at the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest in Oregon on Saturday (July 14).
The spill was caught on camera by at least one fan in attendance, then shared on social media. Shelton himself drew attention to the spill when he tweeted about it, looking for video of the mishap in the early morning hours of Sunday (July 15).
"I know somebody is bound to have video of me falling on stage last night!! Please!! I have to see it!!! Post that sh--!" he writes on Twitter, joking: "And yes, I had been drinking. A lot ... "
Shelton also tweeted directly to rapper Pitbull, who performed just before the country star's set:
Of course, the tweets were all in good fun, as the two happily posed for a picture together before their individual performances:
Country's own Kenny Chesney also took a spill onstage over the weekend, and his fall resulted in an injury. He's expected to recover.
Here's to hoping that Shelton is a bit more careful during the weekend coming up, as the always entertaining showman will continue on in his festival run with sets at Faster Horses in Michigan on Friday (July 20) and Country Jam USA on Saturday (July 21).
