Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Airbourne‘s tour stop in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada back in October 2016:

“Next up was headliner Airbourne who have to be one of the most consistent performers out there. You know what you’re going to get from Airbourne if you’ve seen them before. The band is full of energy with bassist Justin Street and rhythm guitarist David Roads headbanging in their respective corners similar to AC/DC‘s Cliff Williams and Malcolm Young back in the day except that Street and Roads ran to trade places for a brief moment during just about every song. Drummer Ryan O’Keeffe was his usual steady self but frankly I did not notice him that much since his drum kit was further away nestled in the back and there was sometimes smoke and a lot of action in front of me. While Street, Roads and drummer O’Keeffe performed their roles admirably, the star of the evening for Airbourne was undeniably frontman Joel O’Keeffe. I was wondering how much the singer and lead guitarist would be moving given that it had been reported that he fell off stage while performing in Kamloops, British Columbia on September 22, 2016 and sustained some broken ribs and torn ligaments in one foot. I am not sure about the broken ribs as Joel O’Keeffe did not have any sort of bandage around them and was moving around so much that it seemed hard to fathom that he would have sustained broken ribs.

What was quite evident was that Joel O’Keeffe had a big walking cast on his left foot but he simply did not let that hinder him from moving around the stage. To his credit, even with his walking cast, Joel O’Keeffe moved around more on stage than most other guitar wielding singers. At one point towards the end of the evening, Joel O’Keeffe was literally running — or perhaps hopping — from one side of the stage to the other. I wasn’t surprised in the least when all of a sudden during “Girls In Black,” Joel O’Keeffe was suddenly on someone’s shoulders while that someone walked around the venue through the crowd. Before you knew it, Joel O’Keeffe was up on some sort of table rocking away in the back of the venue. I suspect that Joel O’Keeffe‘s left foot may need a little more time to heal with the amount of moving around and pounding that it seemingly takes every live performance!”
