Radiohead have released a statement detailing how the band will proceed following the stage collapse that killed drum technician Scott Johnson before a show in Toronto last weekend. Because the collapse damaged the band's light show and stage setup, a group of Radiohead's tour dates must be rescheduled.
From the statement:
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.
