Radiohead release statement over Toronto tragedy, delay forthcoming shows
Radiohead have released a statement as regards to the stage collapse in Toronto last weekend which claimed the life of their drum technician Scott Johnson, as well as seriously injuring three people.
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:
- 30 Roma Hippodrome Capanelle
- 1 Firenze Parco delle Cascine
- 3 Bologna Arena Parco Nord
- 4 Codroipo Villa Manin
- 6 Berlin Wuhlheide
- 7 Berlin Wuhlhedie
- 9 St Triphon Carriere des Andonces
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. We will start playing live again at Les Arenes Nimes, Bilbao BBK festival and Lisbon Optimus Alive festival. We will make every effort to offer the fans the very best show possible under the circumstances – thanks for your understanding and support.
