"The audience thought that he had broken his neck" wrote a well known Icelandic music enthusiast called Dr. Gunni on his blog. "Especially when a roadie, who was very upset, came running over the stage and jumped to Nick Cave. While this was happening the band went crazy with one of the most masterful freak/noise-outs of the evening.".
Nick Cave was not badly injured and returned to the stage and made fun of the whole thing. He said that he should have asked for a railing on the stage and that his behind hurts.
The incident can be seen on the following Youtube clip, when around 8 minutes and 20 seconds have passed.
