Mike Skinner dislocates shoulder while crowd surfing at Birmingham gig

The Streets front man shared a video of himself receiving treatment at Birmingham City Hospital

Mike Skinner dislocated his shoulder while playing a gig as The Streets in Birmingham, the front man has revealed in a video on his Instagram.

The clip shows the musician jumping into the crowd during his performance of ‘Fit But You Know It’ at O2 Academy Birmingham last night (January 18th).

The video then pans to the hospital, where Skinner is receiving treatment on his dislocated arm – you can watch the footage below.

While receiving pain relief, Skinner can be heard saying, “I’m fucked”, before another snippet shows the shoulder being reset, while Skinner says, “I heard it, I could cry.”

Ending the video, Skinner thanks the staff for helping him. He says: “Thank you so much to everyone at Birmingham City Hospital for putting my arm back in.”

Skinner is due to play another date at 02 Academy Birmingham this evening (January 19th) before taking the show to Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester next week.

In November, The Streets released latest single ‘Call Me In The Morning’ featuring Chip and Grim Sickers and Skinner gave details of a mix tape he was working on.

The Streets also released new track ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ last March and played a string of reunion shows that marked the first live return in seven years.

Skinner confirmed the current tour last year and despite previously telling NME he would only reform The Streets if he needed the cash, Skinner confirmed that the reunion tour was all about celebrating the music.

He told Mr Porter: “Well, I don’t need the cash, otherwise I’d have done all the festivals, and the offers we got were insane. There were a few things that Dizzee [Rascal] said when he did the big Red Bull gigs [referencing his 2016 Boy In Da Corner shows]. He said at one point, ‘I know this means a lot to you,’ and it felt like it was his way of saying, ‘But I’ve moved on.’ And I totally get that. I’m gonna celebrate the past.”
