    More sad news involving a toppled stage at a concert! One week after the stage buckled and blew over at the Indiana State Fair, thanks to a gust of wind, another stage collapsed. This time, in Belgium.

    A storm hit the Pukkelpop Festival in Hasselt, Belgium, causing the stage to collapse and killing several people. Foo Fighters are one of the main bands on the bill. However, Chicago band Smith Westerns were on stage when the storms rolled through.

    "Stage collapsed max almost got crushed by the tress. I hope pukkelpop has insurance bc all our sh*t is broke," Smith Westerns frontman Cullen Omori posted via Twitter, according to Billboard. The band quickly deleted the message when the fact that loss of life had occurred. "Praying no one got hurt" was the follow up tweet. 6,000 people are said to be in attendance at the fest.

    So sad. We pray for the victims.

    Have you sent prayers out to the victims yet? Please do.
