The Edge fell off the stage at the opening concert for U2’S new tour last night in Vancouver .

Luckily the U2 star was unhurt despite the fall, which happened when he missed his footing walking down a long pathway.

The guitar player took to Instagram to reassure fans that he was fine after the embarrassing incident.

The fall comes after a much more serious mishap to Bono, who was badly injured when he was in a bike collision in Central Park last year.

The Irish Independent called the show “ a resounding success, boasting stages at either end of the arena and a new sound and video system which ensures everyone can see and hear the band at their best.”
