BERLIN, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 17: Singer Grimes aka Claire Boucher performs live on stage during a concert at Astra on February 17, 2016 in Berlin, Germany. (Photo by Stefan Hoederath/Redferns)Image: Stefan HOederath/getty By Tricia Gilbride 2016-03-16 17:12:27 UTC Musician Grimes was electrocuted several times on stage during a performance in Dublin March 15 — which is absolutely terrifying.  Even more amazing: In a now-deleted tweet, Grimes apologized to the crowd for being electrocuted. Clearly, she is too pure for this world — with the possible exception of her native Canada and meadows full of bunnies.  SEE ALSO: Grimes is a cool mix of Marie Antoinette and Daenerys Targaryen in her new video Dublin! 1 mil apologies that my pedal failed and I was electrocuted, but there r tears in my eyes that y'all were so so wonderful 💖💖💖💖🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪 — Grimes (@Grimezsz) March 15, 2016 15/03/16 I saw Grimes 💖 @actuallygrimes and @hanatruly were absolutely amazing.

She also thanked her Irish fans for singing "Happy Birthday" ahead of her birthday, which also happens to be St. Patrick's Day. Hey! just wanna apologize to the Olympia theatre that I originally thought they were responsible for the electrical issues at last nights show. We've triple checked everything and haven't yet discovered what the issue was. The Irish promoters were nothing but lovely and I don't want them to take the blame for something that was most likely on our end. I also want to reiterate that everyone on my team and especially my audio guys did everything they could without stopping the show, but it was some kind of an issue w the vocal channel so even whilst bypassing the pedal I was getting gunshots through the vocal channel into my monitors. Perhaps it was an angry ghost. Anyway this probably doesn't make any sense to non-musicians, but w regards to the inside baseball I just wanted to say something so no one loses their job or gets in trouble for an issue that, as far as I can tell, was outside of everyone's control. Anyhow haha, apologies for the long and insane post, about to get on a 12 hour flight so hopefully this won't cause further press drama. :) and thanks again to the Irish fans!!!! I cannot reiterate how grateful I am to y'all for letting us trouble shoot between songs and for singing me happy bday and being all around jovial.

Maim but I was ok!!! I respect Claire so much for continuing even though she was being electrocuted by a faulty pedal throughout the course of the gig and I just really hope that s
