Radiohead Postpone European Dates Following Toronto Stage Collapse
Radiohead are going to need some time for themselves. The band, still mourning the loss of drum technician Scott Johnson as a result of last Saturday's stage collapse in Toronto, is postponing several stops on its upcoming summer European tour due to production issues.
A statement on Radiohead's Dead Air Space website reads:
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 and consequently we have to try and reschedule the following shows.
The postponed dates in question run from June 30 through July 9; check below for full details. The band concluded, "We aim to announce the new dates for these shows on Wednesday 27th of June and will also supply information on how to obtain refunds on tickets if you cannot come to the show on the new date."
The group will resume touring on July 10 in Nimes, France. Check out their updated itinerary here.
