U2’s megaselling Innocence + Experience tour got off to a rough start on Thursday night. At the tour opener, guitarist “The Edge” wandered forward on the stage as he led the crowd in singing the chorus of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”* Perhaps what he was looking for was the edge of the stage, because he soon wandered right off it. (Yes, get all your “The Edge fell off the edge” jokes out now.)

If you just laughed at the poor guy, it might make you feel a little better to know that he’s OK.

"Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!!
