The 'Chinese Democracy' star takes a tumble during performance of 'Sweet Child o' Mine' at Hellfest.

Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose fell over face first during the band's performance at a French festival over the weekend.

Video footage shows the veteran singer taking a tumble just moments before singing the opening of 'Sweet Child o' Mine'.

Despite falling awkwardly onto one of the stage risers, Axl was able to regain his footing in time to sing the song.

Guns N' Roses' performance at Hellfest was part of their ongoing European tour, which is seeing them play a mixture of festivals and stadium gigs.

Megadeth, Ozzy Osbourne and former Guns N' Roses member turned solo star Slash also performed at the festival in Clisson.

It is not known whether the group, of which Axl is the only remaining original member, plan to release another record.
