Radiohead will re-schedule seven European shows following the tragic Toronto stage collapse last weekend which killed their crew member Scott Johnson and also injured three others.
In a statement released on their official website, Radiohead revealed the stage collapse had also destroyed their ‘unique’ live set-up, meaning gigs at the Rome Hippodrome Capanelle on June 30th, Florence Parco delle Cascine on July 1st, Bologna Arena Parco Nord (3rd), Codroipo Villa Manin (4th), Berlin Wuhlheide (6th & 7th) and St Triphon Carriere des Andonces (9th) will be re-scheduled, with new dates and full refund information set to be announced on June 27th.
“As you will probably have heard the roof over the stage collapsed at our show in Toronto killing crew member Scott Johnson and injuring three other crew members,” the statement reads.
“The collapse also destroyed the light show – this show was unique and will take many weeks to replace. The collapse also caused serious damage to our backline, some elements of which are decades old and therefore hard to replace.”
“Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident there are also many practical considerations to deal with.”Just Published:
