Radiohead Releases Statement on Stage Collapse, Adjusts Tour Dates

In the wake of the stage collapse that killed a drum tech and injured three other crew members, Radiohead has released a statement about their future touring plans through their Facebook.

The collapse forced the band to postpone several dates, which you can see in the statement below. The statement reads:

Hello everyone,

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 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 & consequently we have to try and reschedule the following shows…

We will make every effort to offer the fans the very best show possible under the circumstances – thanks for your understanding and support.

The cancelled and postponed tour dates are below.
