Fuck, condolences to the guys family/friends
Hope the other injured guys are okay too.


Looking at this, that lighting rig looks pretty fucked.

Bands instruments were also on stage before it fell down

I reckon the upcoming tour dates are gonna be cancelled. It'll take em a while to get everything set up again, I doubt they have any spare stage set ups hanging around.

Wow absolutely crazy....all I can say is I am very, very, very happy that I saw them in Montreal last night. I got back to Toronto as quick as I could and got number 86 of however many people to get in, something like 40,000+ (they were using a number system). Waited for hours outside, and we heard a loud bang but had no idea that it was the stage, then about 30min later we found out it was the stage, and another 15min later there were rumors that the show was cancelled. People were literally crying when they confirmed there would be no show.

And then of course everyone on here already knows the rest, 1 dead, 1 critical, some others injured. No news of who was on the stage, but like Jordasm said, all the equipment and rigs were set up, so who knows what this means for the upcoming dates...
Just to see what if...

Just terrible. In every way. Tragic death. Disappointed fans.

Does anyone know for sure if their instruments were destroyed? I can see photos of their whole setup ready for soundcheck, and then the stage after the heavy collapse. I assume that means they lost alot of their instruments. Poor Jonny and Ed and the drummers. Thank God Thom and the boys weren't on stage at the time. We almost lost them. And logistics make rescheduling another Toronto date seem implausible in 2012.

Just awful. :(

Maybe I'm just trying to make something positive out of this horrible situation, but
There's no way the eventual rescheduled concert will be anything short of special.

People are speculating it won't be rescheduled, which would frankly be lame as fuck, no disrespect to the loss intended

Wow that would suck. At the risk of coming off as a heartless douche, this would've been my first time seeing them and the thought of waiting another 4 years to see my favorite band is quite the massive bummer :(

Truly sick to my stomach right now. I'm in central NY. I would've loved to have seen them tonight I didn't have tickets, but close.
Didn't hear of this until about an hour or more ago on At Ease twitter live fed.
I so very sorry for all involved. I'm so sorry of the loss of this person's life and any whom were injured. I would suspect the lighting/rigging is what
brought this down. Probably an older stage roof that couldn't bare the weight all the rigging.
I would imagine the band is in shock right now. I'm sure they are super sad, but also freaked out of how fucking close this was! They sure as
hell could've been up there for a sound check or worse, during the show. Thom and company's minds must be racing along with their hearts.
Peace to all.

They rescheduled back in 2003 - although that was due to a blackout.

This is a bit different. The band will need some time to recover, they may have been near the stage getting ready to go on, also their gear was on the stage at the time, drums, pianos, possibly guitars.

just got home from work expecting to hear about a great show, this is horrible news. My thoughts go out to all who were affected by what happened, the deceased and family of, the injured, the fans and the bands and crew.





Side note : im also concerned to hear about what equipment survived, or didn't survive, the wreck. cuz yea, this is a very emotional thing for the band to deal with. all those ''what ifs'' are kind of scary.

total waste of time... :smoke_coo 

 

 

we all die anyways...why not just enjoy the way out
