10. Madonna – July 5, 2012madonna like a virgen mtv awards1 300x276 Dynamic Tickets: Top Ten On Stage Celebrity Meltdowns

  • The Material Girl performed her classic “like a virgin” in a bra and pants with “No Fear” scrawled across her back. She eventually broke down in tears, and a backup dancer picked her up. Check out Madge’s next show with tickets from DynamicTickets.net

9. Michael Richards (Seinfeld) – November 17, 2006

  • We know him as Jerry Seinfeld’s quirky neighbor Kramer. He’s still doing comedy, and apparently, he doesn’t like hecklers. Richards responded to hecklers at a Laugh Factory show with a barrage of racial slurs and curse words. While Richards has since apologized for the incident, no one has really let him live it down.

8. Justin Bieber – September 29, 2012

  • The Biebs is a pro, and knows the show must go on. When the pop star got sick onstage, he spun around, vomited, asked his fans if they’d still love him when he has the flu, and continued with his show. You can get tickets for Justin’s next show at DynamicTickets.net. Hopefully he’ll be feeling okay!

7. Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath) – January 20, 1982

  • It might seem strange to call biting the head off an actual bat during a show a meltdown, but try telling that to the bat. A fan threw a dead bat onto the stage during one of Ozzy’s shows, and thinking it was a toy, he picked it up and chewed off its head. Turns out that the bat was real.

6. Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) – November 7, 2008

  • Corgan allowed publicly decry a poor earlier performance, and instead of taking the criticism gracefully, he mocked his fans in a cruel manner with a sarcastic retort.

5. Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) – September 22, 2012billy joe iheart radio freakout 300x300 Dynamic Tickets: Top Ten On Stage Celebrity Meltdowns

  • Armstrong recently entered rehab for drug abuse after a profanity-laced tantrum onstage at the iHeart Radio music festival. The singer was reportedly upset that his set was being cut short in favor of rapper Usher. He smashed his guitar, flashed his middle finger to fans, and then walked offstage.

4. Scott Stapp (Creed) – December 29, 2002

  • The Creed singer has been in the news more than once, and not in the most flattering ways. In 2002, he performed so abysmally at a show that fans demanded a refund.

3. Ashlee Simpson – October 23, 2004

  • Performing on Saturday Night Live is an honor, and maybe Ashlee was just nervous. But when the track she was lip-syncing to skipped, she danced for 30 seconds and ran offstage.

2. Milli Vanilli – July 21, 1989

  • Milli Vanilli is well-known for its lip-syncing scandal in the ’80s. When the duo was performing in 1989, the track skipped, blowing their cover and creating the hardest fall from grace in recent musical history.

1. Keith Moon (The Who) – November 20, 1973

  • In what may be the greatest moment of a no-name drummer’s life, The Who drummer passed out while performing on stage, and couldn’t continue the show. Pete Townsend asked the audience if there were any drummers, and Scott Halpin volunteered, who ended up finishing out the show and played three songs by The Who.
