Radiohead delay part of their tour

Comment on this story

Toronto - Radiohead have postponed part of their European tour after a stage collapse in Toronto that killed the band's drum technician.

A statement posted on the British band's website on Thursday says they are dealing with grief from the accident and practical considerations that have forced them to postpone shows in Italy, Germany and Switzerland scheduled through July 9.

Scott Johnson was killed on Saturday when the stage came crashing down as the crew set up for a concert in Toronto's Downsview Park. Three other crew members were injured.

The band said the collapse destroyed their light show, which will take weeks to replace. The statement said new dates for the postponed shows will be announced on June 27. - Sapa-AP
