Radiohead has re-scheduled its Italian, German and Swiss concerts due to take place from the 30th June to the 9th July after the tragedy that occurred last week, before their live set in Toronto.
Hours before the start of their performance, the stage collapsed killing technician Scott Johnson, injuring three people and causing severe damage to the band’s equipment.
As a consequence, the band has postponed their performances in Italy, Germany and Switzerland, restarting the tour on the 10th July in France, three days before the band’s performance at Bilbao BBK Live. Below you can find the official band’s announcement:
RADIOHEAD’S OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Hello everyone, As you will probably have heard the roof over the stage collapsed at our show in Toronto killing crewmember Scott Johnson and injuring three other crewmembers. 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: June 30 Roma Hippodrome Capanelle; July 1 Firenze Parco delle Cascine 3 Bologna Arena Parco Nord 4 Codroipo Villa Manin 6 Berlin Wulheide 7 Berlin Wulhedie 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..
