Motown legends The Temptations were forced to cut their gig at Manchester Arena short after their frontman fell off a stage and hit his head.
A representative for the band told The Independent the band’s lead singer Larry Braggs lost his balance while performing the last song and fell from the stage on Saturday night.
Braggs was taken to hospital but has now been released and has made a speedy recovery. The band continued with their tour as usual and performed in Leeds last night.
