Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Literally fallen. Like on the stage, off the stage, into the audience; these musicians and performers give new meaning to falling from the top. Whether it was the result of a complicated dance move, debris on the stage, or a result of old age, there are myriad musicians and celebrities who have tumbled on and off the stage while performing.

Which singers have fallen on stage? Here's a list of the world's biggest rock stars falling. These stage accidents range from Madonna falling to Bono's stage fall, to Taylor Swift, Joaquin Phoenix, Britney Spears and even the most recent celebrity fall from Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

Marilyn Manson

This isn't a case of the artist falling, rather the set falling on the artist. Rocker Marilyn Manson was hurt at a September 2017 concert when a set piece crashed on top of him. The props appeared to be large metal guns at the back of the stage. Manson was taken to the hospital on a stretcher, and cancelled his remaining tour dates as a result of his injuries.

If you start the video at 00:40, you can see that one of the on-stage harness-keepers (yes, this is the best role we could think of for them) wasn't exactly confident in the job they did. The harness dragged both the "assistant" (THERE'S a better word) AND Pink with it, slingshotting Pink onto the steel barricade. We can only imagine there was a Pink-assistant shaped hole in the wall after that, as it seems that the assistant was flung further away and we never get to see what happened to them.

She is heard to say "F**k! That hurt like a m**********r"

She climbed back up onto the stage while obviously still in pain and was then taken away to hospital.

Pink later tweeted (from twitter.com/pink)

To all my Nurenberg fans - I am so so so sorry to end the show that way. I am embarrassed and very sorry. I'm in ambulance now but I will b fine

@PinkFacts didn't get clipped in2 harness correctly,drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade. Getting xrays.I hope it at least looked cool!!!

Ok all my lovers out there- nothings broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my b*tch!!!! Thanx nurnberg :(

What kind of celebrity fail list would be complete without Justin Bieber bringing in the rear? 

Here he is, pretending to fight some bad guys, when he takes a dramatic spill, flipping through the air, and then limping off stage. Ouch.
