Cheap Trick Demand Safety Following Stage Collapse
They were performing on the main stage on the final day of the two-week event when a freak storm arrived over the festival site. They abandoned their set mid-song and were only half-way down the stage steps when a powerful gust of wind brought the roof, awning and lighting rig down around them.
Frontman Robin Zander revealed they only survived because their equipment truck had broken the construction's fall and left them a five-foot gap through which they escaped. Their truck driver was the only person seriously injured in the incident, sustaining a broken pelvis and pierced abdomen. Now manager Dave Frey has demanded event organisers learn lessons to avoid a more tragic similar event taking place. more on this story
