Ceiling Collapse During Concert At Venue Used In Prince's Purple Rain: Theory of a Deadman News

(Radio.com) Iconic music venue First Avenue in Minneapolis had a mighty scare this week when a 30 foot by 30 foot section of the ceiling collapsed during a performance of band Theory of a Deadman. Three people were hospitalized with no word on the extant of their injuries.

The Canadian rock band was beginning their fourth song, around 10 p.m., when the incident occurred, Reports Consequence of Sound. Video taken from the scene shows the collapse happen, with the very fortunate take-away being that there weren't many people in the area that the ceiling collapsed at that time.

The venue reportedly had just undergone inspection for a new lighting rig that was installed, so whether or not they will be held liable for the injuries incurred remains to be seen. The venue was famously featured prominently in Prince's iconic movie "Purple Rain". Read more here.
