16 Musicians Who Received Electric Shocks on Stage

When you think about it, it's a wonder more musicians don't get electrocuted on stage: all the electrical equipment, outdoor concerts, and rowdy fans can make for a potentially lethal combo. Musicians who got electrocuted on stage include everyone from Kesha to George Harrison — and although both walked away from their experiences unscathed, many musicians who were electrocuted on stage didn't make it off the stage, like French singer Barbara Weldens.  Technically, however, each of these artists was at the receiving end of an electric shock, as "electrocution" is defined by a fatality as the result of electircal currents.

Here's the comprehensive list of musicians electrocuted during shows. Do any of the names shock you?
