A fan attending last night’s (August 16) “Stadium Tour” show in Indianapolis reportedly fell from the upper deck while Motley Crue was mid-set.

TMZ reports the unidentified man fell from the upper deck about 45 minutes into the Crue’s set at Lucas Oil Stadium. The outlet shared video (below) from the event showing a motionless man on the ground while other concertgoers tend to him.

The fallen man was “awake and breathing” according to Indianapolis PD who assisted on the scene. Unsurprisingly, a witness told the gossip outlet there was a pool of blood around the fan that fell. The man was quickly placed on a stretcher and taken out of the stadium. Police are investigating whether or not alcohol or other substances played a roll in the accident.

The condition of the fallen man is unknown as of publishing. No one from Motley Crue’s camp has issued a statement regarding the accident.


“The Stadium Tour” featuring Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts is one of the hottest concert tickets. As previously reported, the tour is the fourth largest grossing tour in the world right now. Over the course of 14 shows, the average number of tickets sold for each show is 36,513. The average capacity for each show isn’t a full sell-out, but it’s very close at 98.8 percent. The biggest number, though, is the average gross for the past 14 shows, which is a whopping $4,962,861.

The only tours to currently out-perform “The Stadium Tour” are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay and Ed Sheeran. The average number of tickets sold for each of their tours comes in at 60,033, 66,429 and 73,340, respectively. As for the average gross for each tour, those figures come in at $6,369,712, $6,067,972 and $6,310,499, respectively.
