Radiohead canceled their show in Toronto, Canada on Saturday night (June 16) after their stage collapsed and killed a crew member. The band was set to perform at Downsview Park, but the stage structure came crashing down at around 4 PM, pinning the crew person under the scaffolding and killing him.
Toronto police Constable Tony Vella said, according to WENN, that "there were a number of people on the stage setting up for the concert when the top portion collapsed on top of them. The remainder of the people, when they heard the stage coming [down], ran from the area."
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the man who was killed.
