The Fall’s Mark E Smith returns to stage after injury

Singer performs gig in a wheelchair

The Fall’s Mark E Smith took to the stage for the first time on Tuesday (March 31) since breaking his hip.

The 52-year-old frontman performed in a wheelchair during his band’s concert in Cambridge, reports BBC News.

He is now due to play with his band at London’s KOKO tonight (April 1).

Smith fell victim to the same injury during The Fall’s 2004 US tour, forcing the band to cancel several shows. (A tour that we witnessed Mr. Smith in a wheelchair). Maybe less booze and crack might keep Mark’s hip in better shape. But god knows that isn’t going to happen.
