Footage has emerged online showing Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose taking a tumble onstage at a recent gig in Mexico.

The band were performing at the city's Palacio De Los Deportes venue on Tuesday (October 18) when the frontman tripped and fell off the stage during their version of 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door'. Watch the clip by scrolling down and clicking below.

The footage then shows one of his road crew rushing to Rose's aid but he refuses their help, eventually pulling himself back up onstage to huge cheers from the crowd.

His trip comes days after the band issued a statement after they were accused of disrespecting their fans by the organiser of Brazilian festival Rock In Rio. Thy issued a statement explaining why they appeared two hours late, blaming the festival's "inadequate production" and heavy rain.

The statement, which also says the band were ready to perform well ahead of their scheduled stage time, ends with a comment from the rockers, which says that they "would never seek to intentionally disrespect anyone, especially their fans".

It came after Rock In Rio festival organiser Roberto Medina publicly criticised the band, saying that they had "a lack of commitment and respect for the public".

Rose was also recently caught on camera talking about how he would often steal girls from Slash backstage during the band's heyday.
