The Vamps’ Connor Ball Falls Off Stage While Opening for Taylor Swift
Ouch! The Vamps’ Connor Ball took a huge fall off the stage at London’s O2 arena Tuesday night, injuring his right arm.
The 19-year-old, along with bandmates James McVey, Tristan Evans, and Brad Simpson, was at the venue opening for Taylor Swift on her Red tour.
Connor had the accident while playing guitar during the group’s hit song “Can We Dance.” It appeared that the bandmember was too distracted by the song to notice that the platform was coming to an end, as you can literally see him walk off the stage in the video a fan posted on YouTube. Even worse, his right arm twists back as he attempts to save himself from falling.
After the incident, Connor was in good spirits on Twitter. He even joked that it was ironic that he fell after vocalist Brad sang the words: “Save me here cause I can barely stand.”
I didn’t just walk off the end of the stage or anything, ouch

Luckily for Connor, his hurt arm won’t cause him to miss any performances, as his spill occurred on the last date of Taylor’s 11-month Red tour.
However, Connor doesn’t have much time to rest: The Vamps just announced the dates for their first headlining tour in the UK!
