Stage Collapses At 'Cheap Trick' Concert, Two Injured

Monday, 18 Jul 2011 03:09 PM

A sudden storm brought the stage down on the band Cheap Trick at Ottawa, Canada’s Bluesfest, the Vancouver Sun reports.

Thousands of people were evacuated on Sunday after the stage collapsed amid tornado-strength winds. Ottawa police reported that two people suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Allegedly a pole broke off the back of the stage and hit Cheap Trick’s driver. He suffered head and leg injuries and a cut on his stomach.

The Sunday evening programming at the multi-day, outdoor concert was cancelled after the violent storm. Bluesfest spokesman Joe Reilly said the festival constantly monitors weather satellites, but the “micro burst” proved an unpredictably violent storm.
