Video: Deftones’ Chino Moreno breaks foot in fall


Video footage has emerged showing the moment Deftones frontman Chino Moreno broke his foot while performing live.

He and the band were playing a set at Meerhout’s Groezrock in Belgium earlier this week, when the vocalist fell from the front of the stage.

The band played on, with Moreno managing to get back on the stage to carry on with the performance – clearly in a great deal of discomfort.

The accident forced Deftones to cancel their show in Cologne on Monday evening, with the band saying: “Regretfully, we have to cancel our show tonight due to Chino breaking the top of his foot.

“He needs to stay off it for the next day or two. No other shows as of now are in jeopardy of being cancelled. We hope to make it back soon to perform for you again.

“In the meantime, all tickets will be refunded. Thanks for your understanding.”

The rest of the band’s live commitments are unaffected at the time of writing.

Deftones have several more European dates planned over the coming days before they return to North America for a run of shows throughout the summer.

Deftones are also in the brand new issue of Metal Hammer which is on sale now. Rammstein are the cover stars, while Megadeth, System Of A Down and Beartooth also feature.
