This Footage Of The Edge Falling Off Stage NEVER Gets Old...

Celebrate the U2 guitarist's birthday by looking back on this unforgettable fail.

Today is David Howell Evans' 56th Birthday. The guitarist, who's better known as The Edge, has definitely experienced some epic and memorable moments in his lifetime as the guitarist of legendary rock band U2.

But for us, nothing is more memorable than the moment he fell off the stage. Watch it in our clip below:

Back in 2015, the group launched their Innocence And Experience tour at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena.

It was a lengthy set, with U2 showcasing their impressive new album across an imaginative set that ran across the entire arena.

However, during the final song - the aforementioned I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For - The Edge’s mind must have been somewhere else… or he just wasn’t used to the new stage set.

The guitarist took one step too far and fell right off the stage to the horrified gasps of the crowd.

Luckily, he was OK. He later posted a photo of his grazed arm, claiming he didn't see "the edge". Oh, the irony!

Maybe he had a case of Vertigo?
