Mudvayne’s Chad Gray falls off stage while performing ‘Not Falling’

It had to happen at some point, right? They reunited Mudvayne are back on tour playing some of their biggest hits, but given that one of those songs is “Not Falling,” how long would they tempt fate? It turns out that the answer to that question was July 27, 2022.

As seen in the fan-shot video, Mudvayne frontman Chad Grey fell from the front of the concert stage Wednesday night while performing at the Ameris Bank Amphitheater in Alpharetta, Georgia. Fortunately, Gray appeared no worse for wear after falling off the concert stage, still singing the song while out of view from the crowd, eventually emerging from the cave at the front of the stage and reappearing.

“Not Falling” came a little over halfway through the band’s 13-song set, and it seems the rest of their performance was uneventful.

Mudvayne’s reunion first took place in 2021 and has been carried over to this year. Back in the spring, singer Chad Gray told Avenged Sevenfold’s Johnny Christ on his Drinks with Johnny podcast that Mudvayne is reunion will be transferred to the studio. The band haven’t released an album since their self-titled release in 2009, but were certainly keen to see how things worked out in the studio after their long hiatus.

Mudvayne is part of the “Freaks on Parade” tour, a stellar bill that includes Rob Zombie, Static-X and Powerman 5000. The tour just kicked off this past week, but it hasn’t been entirely without incident. The stop in Noblesville, Indiana was affected by production issues when a semi-tractor trailer carrying some of the production elements for the tour broke down en route to the venue. As a result, Static-X and Powerman 5000 missed their sets entirely, while Mudvayne and Zombie played shortened shows. However, Rob Zombie gave fans a pretty memorable moment at that show when he invited members of Static-X and Powerman 5000 to join his band on stage for a performance of “Thunder Kiss 65.”

The “Freaks On Parade” tour continues until mid-August. Get your tickets for the run here.
