RADIOHEAD: TOUR POSTPONED AFTER STAGE COLLAPSE

Radiohead
Following the collapse of a Toronto stage and the subsequent death of crew member Scott Johnson, Radiohead has decided to postpone a slew of upcoming European tour dates.

"Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident there are also many practical considerations to deal with," the band said in a statement on its website earlier today (June 21).

In addition to the loss of Johnson, the incident injured three other crew members and destroyed the group's light show which "was unique and will take many weeks to replace." Similarly, the collapse ruined Radiohead's backline, elements of which "are decades old and therefore hard to replace."
