Rage Towards the Machine‘s Tom Morello had a run-in with safety throughout the rock band’s live performance at Toronto’s Scotiabank Area on Saturday (July 23).
As seen in a fan-captured video, halfway by the group’s closing music “Killing within the Title,” the long-lasting guitarist was unintentionally knocked over by a safety guard sprinting towards an unruly fan who snuck onto the stage.

Because the lights went up, Morello was seen shortly standing up with a smile on his face and indicating to the roaring crowd that he wasn’t harmed throughout the incident. After the musician stepped again onto the stage together with his guitar, de la Rocha supplied just a few cautionary phrases to different concert-goers with any wild concepts about crashing the stage.
“Whoever the f— will get sensible like that, don’t strive that s— once more,” the frontman warned, as bassist Tim Commerford interrupted to ask what occurred. De la Rocha continued, “Sorry, we’re cool, we love y’all, however don’t do this!”
Morello then motioned for the group to restart “Killing within the Title” from the highest, and Rage completed off their 18-song set.
