What goes up doesn’t always come down.
This was the lesson Every Time I Die’s Jordan Buckley learned while crowd surfing at an El Paso, Texas show. The band is touring with Taking Back Sunday, but were greeted with just as much enthusiasm as the headliner in Texas.
Crowd surfing is insanely cool, and one of the most honored traditions of any hard rock concert. What’s more exhilarating than a band member diving into the hands of an adoring crowd? The action truly incorporates the fans into the show as active participants, and some wish it would never end. This was certainly the case at the Texas show, where fans refused to put Buckley back on his feet!
The stage dive occurred toward the end of Every Time I Die’s set, and even when the band had completed their last song and house music began to play, Buckley was still floating among the crowd.
Buckley joked on Twitter, ““I’m still up. They never put me down. I think I’m still somewhere in Texas. Help.”
Every Time I Die continue to showcase their album Low Teens, which came out last year. They will be performing with Taking Back Sunday through August 19. Check out dates here. Watch the crowd surfing incident here.
Who knows, with the help of his fans, Buckley might not need a tour bus to get himself to the remaining stops!
