Stage Collapses at Cheap Trick Show
Cheap Trick members and crew are lucky to not be seriously hurt after a stage collapsed Sunday night at the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest.
Severe weather caused the stage to crumble during Cheap Trick’s set. Amazingly, no concertgoers, staff or band members were seriously hurt. According to the band’s website, “The stage blew down and collapsed,” “Everyone is shaken up but band and crew are all fine.”
Cheap Trick’s Manager Dave Frey confirmed for CNN that the band was unharmed.
“One of our drivers will spend the night in the hospital and though we’re not sure how, Cheap Trick are grateful and happy to say that everyone, including all the concert goers, are okay,” Frey said.
The website for the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest claims there were “no serious injuries,” and that severe weather forced the closure of all venue stages for that night.
