Radiohead release statement following stage collapse
Radiohead have released a statement regarding the stage collapse before a show by the band in Toronto last weekend.
Drum technician Scott Johnson was killed when the incident occurred at Downsview Park while three others were injured. Much of the band's light show and stage set up were also destroyed during the collapse, which has forced the postponement of seven upcoming European shows.
The statement read "Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident there are also many practical considerations to deal with."
It continued "We will make every effort to offer the fans the very best show possible under the circumstances - thanks for your understanding and support."
The Canadian Ministry of Labour has also announced it is investigating four companies as being responsible for the stage collapse; Radiohead's Ticker Tape Touring LLP, Toronto-based Optex Staging and Services, Nasco Staffing Solutions and concert promoter Live Nation.
Radiohead are to play one concert in New Zealand later this year, at Auckland's Vector Arena on November 6th.
