(Gibson) Radiohead Postpone Tour Following Fatal Stage Collapse was a top 12 rock story of June 2012: In the wake of the stage collapse that caused the death of Radiohead drum tech Scott Johnson and injured three other crew members, Radiohead have postponed several upcoming European tour dates.

In a prepared statement, the band said new dates for the postponed shows would be announced on June 27. The collapse also destroyed the band's light show and other stage components, which the group indicated would be difficult to replace.

The statement goes on to say: "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 [shows through July 9th].

"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." more on this story
