Miguel Suspended in the Air With Hooks in His Back During Shocking Performance to Promote New Album ‘Viscera’

On stage, a bare-backed Miguel had staff members on stage pierce metal hooks through his back and attach him to wires hanging down from the ceiling. Miguel is seen taking a few steps forward and it’s revealed that the hooks are in fact pulling on his bare skin.

Life began imitating art when he was suddenly suspended in the air to perform a new song with lyrics such as “I’m hanging onto nothing / I’m hanging from the ceiling.” After the song, Miguel was gently lowered back onto the stage deck and promptly had the hooks removed.
