Guitarist The Edge tumbled off er, the edge of the stage at Rogers Arena during the band's encore on Thursday night.

A YouTube video captured the British-born musician's fall as the band performed their hit "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

The Edge, whose real name is David Evans, climbed back on stage with some help from security guards, and waved to the cheering crowd.

The 53-year-old musician later joked about his fall, posting a photo of his bruised arm on Instagram, saying: "Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!!"
