– Luke Bryan fell off the stage while performing in Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday night, requiring a few stitches.
The show continued, and Bryan will perform tonight in Bristow, Va. as scheduled.
While playing at Charlotte's PNC Music Pavilion, Bryan was singing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' hit, "Can't Hold Us." While standing at the edge of the stage, he took a step forward and fell. Several people came over to Bryan to check on him. Bryan stood up, leading to applause and finished singing the chorus.
This was not the first time, Bryan fell in North Carolina. "The last time I was in North Carolina, I busted my add," Bryan said about another fall during a February concert in Greensboro.
Bryan sent out a Tweet to his fans this morning, "I'm good. Few stitches."
