Anyway the still was taken from this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhG-ewkhA9o

You can clearly see it in the lead-up and whilst the taper misses the fall you can see the cable seems to be pushed forwards right afterwards.
Yeah, can see it clearly in that video now.

Yeah definitely. That's the best video I've seen of that performance actually but Jesus the clapping is so annoying.

Oh yes, it is so clear now. I feel so sorry for the stagehand, poor little thing.

That must really suck.

It's not like he can just get up and walk away. Must be so so annoying.

Its the picture pointed into the car, where he's clearly trying to block the view of his family. Dave knows pictures of him are par for the course, but not the rest. I hate the papers.

Probably not really a whole lot here that we didn't already know, or couldn't figure out, but this article lays out hard numbers about the cost of cancelling shows. It's kind of interesting. Though I'm sure the band does have comprehensive insurance.

Even with the insurance, I'm betting it still may cost them a couple of million in uncovered expenses. And of course, if they aren't doing shows, there's all that lost revenue.

They've been doing this for two decades. I'm sure it won't break the bank, but still, it's probably at least a half million out of everyone's pocket.

Hopefully that won't cause any hardships for those who might have expensive bills to pay.

Florence & The Machine covered Times Like These on Glaston, obvious dedication to Dave.

Some nice words for him at the beginning. Glad to hear them because I had never heard any Dave-Florence connection, wonder how he 'helped' her/them.

Me, I feel 100% that the 4th is on...all other shows are a crap shoot! Again, just my opinion.

late to the board discussion but been following it since it happened. only one thing to say: this dude has been my hero since I was 15 (I'm 31 now) and one would expect that by now this sort of adolescent thing would've vanished, it never did, it just slowly built up over the years but then all of a sudden this motherfucker just reached GOD level to me. fucking dude, man.

I was so worried when I first saw the footage, I was worried when he just slipped a little in front of me earlier this year so you can imagine what I thought when I saw him just diving off stage. he not only managed to put my mind at ease but just single handedly made fucking history.

P.S.: I laughed histerically at the t-shirt with the x-ray at the shop, if shipping it here wasn't so fucking expensive I would've gotten one.

Do you think he's still using crutches to get around?

I have seen recent pics of him without crutches, dunno whether it was just a one off or not.

At the Vienna Gig in November he said that he walked around through the City without crutches and the cast since the accident happened. So I doubt that he still uses crutches. His leg should be fully recovered.

And if you saw the metal-thing (I don't remember the Name) where he played guitar, he was almost like he was before
