AceShowbiz - Steve Aoki apparently took the phrase "the show must go on" to the heart. On Sunday, May 8, the "Waste It On Me" DJ fell hard off the stage during his DJ set at DAER Nightclub in Hollywood, Florida, but he did not seem to be bothered by the incident.
In a video uploaded by TMZ, the Japanese-American music producer was initially seen bopping his head energetically as he performed. When walking back to his DJ set, however, he tripped over a stool and hit the ground.
Two men, presumably Steve's bodyguards, immediately went to his rescue. Before the two could offer any assistance, the 44-year-old DJ stood back up, took a quick glance at his elbow, and went on as if nothing happened.
After the incident, Steve was reported to be joking around with boxer Ryan Garcia. The "Just Hold On" DJ put on boxing gloves and playfully fought the boxer. The two were also seen hugging and laughing on stage. The fun did not stop there. He took it further by throwing a giant cake in the boxer's face before they danced together.
This was not the first time Steve's performance was marred by an incident. During his 2012 performance at Hard Rock Cafe in San Diego, his stage-dive to an inflated boat caused a fan, named Brittany Hickman, to fracture her neck and to suffer a concussion. It led to her family suing him. The case was dropped after two sides reached a confidential settlement and he apologized to her.
At that time, Steve's representative issued a statement on the matter. "Steve would never want anyone to get hurt at one of his shows and is sorry Ms Hickman did," his rep told Billboard. "After they reached a confidential settlement, they had the chance to speak, and Steve got the chance to apologize."
