While performing his Sex and Love tour to a 12,00-strong crowd in Tijuana, Mexico, Enrique Iglesias accidentally sliced his hand on stage when reaching out to grab a drone that was filming the show.

“During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a point of view shot,” says his publicist Joe Bonilla.

“Something went wrong and he had an accident.”

Enrique saw out the rest of the show, albeit with a very bloody hand and shirt, staying on stage for a further 30 minutes before being taken to the airport where he was met by an ambulance.

Watch it happen.

“Another example of his professionalism!” says Bonilla.

He then flew direct to Los Angeles to see a specialist. Videos and images taken at the concert show the singer reacting after grabbing the drone, quickly throwing it to the floor after being cut.

Moral of the story? Drones are serious gadgets. When you win one at the Commercial Integrator booth at InfoComm, don’t leave it around where Enrique can get his hands on it.
