Following the tragic stage collapse last weekend that killed Radiohead’s drum technician Scott Johnson before their Toronto show, the band have released a statement detailing the postponement of seven of their tour dates:
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.
The rescheduling effects the first seven dates of their tour, which involves all shows in Italy, Germany, and a solitary show in Switzerland. Radiohead also state that they will announce the rescheduled dates on June 27 and refunds will be given for the cancelled shows. The full updated list of tour dates can be found below.
