Rage against the machine Tom Morello is confronted by security
Rage Against the Machine was performing its final track Killing in the Name for its audience in Toronto when a red-shirted fan suddenly sped towards the front of the stage.
However, before he could jump into the crowd, the place’s security guards blocked him.
Furthermore, security not only thwarted the stage breaker’s jump, but also accidentally crashed into Tom Morello, who was playing guitar on stage.
According to videos online, the 58-year-old guitarist was partially falling off stage when a bouncer called him.
Zac de la Rocha, the band leader up front, also abruptly stopped performing as soon as he saw Murillo tumbling into the hole.
He shouted over and over, “Hold on, wait, stop” when the music stopped. The vocalist has been confined to a wheelchair since he injured his leg in one of his previous performances on the reunion tour.
Furthermore, he helped Morello get back on his feet and return to the stage where the band continued to perform amidst a boisterous crowd.

Morello’s incident is not the first. This news comes right after security kicked out a fan who was trying to get close to Lil’ Pepe during his concert.
Roddy Rich also got into an argument with a fan after he repeatedly tried to pull the rapper’s leg during his last performance.
Meanwhile, Cardi B also got into a fight with a fan after they tried to grab artist Bodak Yellow’s microphone at the Wireless Festival.
