What's the worst live f@ck-up you've seen from the band?
 
Not counting Jon's obvious dozens of vocal screw-ups from recent years, what is the worst mishap you've seen from the band during a live show?

I'll start with a legendary one.

It actually seems like Richie honestly forgets how to play the bridge riff and the sudden key change throws him completely off the map. Jon looks extremely pissed off at him.

“My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms”, Yokohama 1996. Several mistakes musically and vocally, particularly from the breakdown after the 2nd chorus onwards.


The timing was off during the drum-fill, which I believe was deliberate on the studio version, but not so deliberate on this occasion. Richie messes up the end of the solo and then he and Jon get the lyrics in the chorus mixed up occasionally when they sing together. Despite all of this, in a way it still works rather well;

Of ones I've seen myself, Sarnia 2008, Twist and Shout started in two different keys.

HAND tour - Richie flubbing the intro to Bounce at Giant Stadium.

OWN tour, Dallas TX, Say it Isn't So
Jon forgot the lyrics at the start of the 2nd verse. Stopped the band and put his head down. He said something like he f'ed up. He forgot the words. And he noticed "the girl in the front row knew every fn word... Say It Isn't So"
back into a repeat of the first chorus.
The show was 20 years ago, this month I believe. My first BJ show and that is what I remember the most... that and the Sympathy medley in KTF.

There’s honestly no shame in f*cking up. Just laugh it off and move on. The way he went on at Phil in 2013 (?) over the Lost Highway/Born To Be My Baby mixup was awful
