OUCH! Enrique Iglesias Learns A Hard Lesson. Never Grab a Flying Drone During a Concert! (Video)
If you are like me, then you haven’t been to a concert in forever. Apparently, drones are used these days to provide the concert goers with views from many angles. The drones capture video that is then projected onto the screen as the concert is playing. Sounds cool right?
What is even cooler, is that during his concerts Enrique often reaches up, grabs the drone and gives the audience a ‘Point of View Shot’ singing directly into the Drone’s camera. However, after Sunday’s performance in Tijuana, Mexico I’m not too sure if he will ever be doing that again.
Something went wrong and the drone sliced his fingers. (That word, “sliced” – can’t you just feel that?). Ouch!!
THE SHOW MUST GO ON
After the ‘slice and dice’, Enrique was encouraged by his team to stop the show but he continued to put on a bloody performance for another 30 minutes. He eventually was rushed to the hospital. Pictures of just how bloody the situation was have flooded social media. The 40 year old was just 50 minutes into his show and wanted to give the fans a little more before bailing out so he kept the party going. He even decided to draw a heart on his shirt in blood for the 12,000 plus fans in attendance.
A statement was put out to formally describe the incident,
During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident. He decided to go on and continued playing for 30 minutes while the bleeding continued throughout the show.
Of course, we wouldn’t be us if we didn’t have video of the incident. OUCH!!
We hope that he’s ok. When I first got the scoop, I thought it was pretty stupid of him. Now I see it as going above and beyond to please his fans. In a day where DJ’s press buttons instead of spin records and artists barely perform, kudos to Enrique for over delivering. His next concert isn’t until July 12th. That’s plenty of time to recover.
