(Rock News Desk) Cheap Trick last night narrowly escaped injury when they abandoned a stage just moments before it collapsed in a heavy storm.

Five people were hurt in the drama, at least one of them seriously, following a freak gust of wind which tore a festival roof canopy apart.

The power-pop rock icons were performing a set at the open-air Bluesfest event in Ottawa, Canada, when the weather turned bad.The four-piece abandoned the show and were being evacuated from the area when the stage roof and lighting rig crashed down on the place they'd been playing. It's thought a gust as strong as 90mph forced the construction to collapse. more on this story
