MUDVAYNE singer chad gray assured fans that he would “get over” the injuries he sustained when he fell off stage during a concert last month.

The incident happened on July 26 in Tampa, Florida, when Greyand his comrades performed the song “Not fall” at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheater as part of MUDVAYNEof the US tour co-headlining with ROB ZOMBIEnicknamed “Freaks On Parade”.

On Saturday (August 6),Grey taken to his instagram to share a new video update on his condition, saying, “Besides dealing with some kind of fucking cold bullshit or whatever, I obviously have my rib thing. I didn’t really want to know what’s going on. was going on, but thanks to a lot of pressure from my professionals and the people who love me around me, I went to a doctor yesterday, and I have negative x-rays, and he said I should probably go do CT scan just to be sure He said I have cartilage inflammation happening but eventually, yeah, I’ll be fine.

“I just want to say thank you to everyone for all of your love and support,” he continued. “And if I keep coming up and putting you in front of you, make sure you support me, don’t let me down. I’m fighting and I refuse to cancel any of these shows. I know how bad these Shows are important to you, and they’re certainly just as important to me. So let’s get together and lose our fucking minds. And I’ll see you on the road, hopefully sooner than later. Until then, please stay safe. stay happy. stay healthy as always. stay heavy metal.

A few days after the incident, Grey joked about the irony of her falling off stage while singing “Not fall”, calling it “crazy” and “incredible”. By appearing on DW present on Twitchit is “The Gunz Club” show hosted by his wife Shannon Gunz of SiriusXMhe said: “It’s amazing. I mean, it really is. Come on. The fucking irony, that it happens during ‘Not fall’ is simply amazing. It’s so crazy.”

According Greythe fall happened as suddenly as can be seen in the many fan-filmed clips that have been circulating on social media.

“As fast as you see it happening, it’s literally as fast and as hard as my chest hit the top of the barricade,” he said. “I wanted to pee my pants. I mean, it hurt so much.”

As for the fan and media reaction to his downfall, Grey said: “What’s crazy is the love I get from the fans and the people who were there or not there, or who attended these shows and who are overjoyed about everything that has been so radical. The people who are really giving me the most shit are my friends. Man, my fucking friends blew me away, sending me all these fucking memes. I was, like , ‘You know what?

July 28, Grey posted a video message on his instagram in which he shared “the whole truth” behind the incident. The 50-year-old musician said in part: “I just want you to know that it’s not like I went out and slipped on a banana peel or something and fell in the crowd. It was absolutely my intention to come out there and face you and lay on top of you and lean into you and scream and make you scream. That’s probably one of my favorite parts of all the shows i play is to get close to you guys.

“What happened is… So I basically walk to the bottom edge of the stage, and I walk across and put my foot on top of the barricade. When I’m on stage, there’s about five feet below me from where my feet are on the ground, so I’m even higher, my head and all that. So, yeah, it’s probably four or five feet. So what happened, it ’til I walked out, the crowd surged forward, pushed my foot back, so my foot went straight down My left foot was still on stage – I hadn’t crossed yet – and all my fucking body just went ‘wham!’ like this, right above the barricade, right here, right across my sternum. I thought I was going to pee in my pants; it hurt so much. Ironically, we were ‘Not fall’, which is amazing, so I just started singing that. And I could sing. So I just went through shit.

“It was fucking brutal” Grey admitted. “But we did it, and I got through it. I’m on day two now. Hopefully it’s the worst. I hope it’s a bit like lifting weights where you hurt for a few days. But the good news is that I didn’t break a rib. Otherwise, this tour could be over and I’d be completely devastated because all I wanted to do for the past two and a half years was is to come back here and be with my fucking ‘heavy metal family across the country and hopefully soon around the world.”
