Yesterday, the stage in Toronto's Downsview Park collapsed in preparation for the show Radiohead was set to perform that night. The collapse caused one person to receive severe injuries and was transported to a local hospital, two received minor injuries and were released shortly after, while one person was pronounced dead on the scene. According to BBC, the person killed was Radiohead's drum technician Scott Johnson.

Radiohead wrote on their Facebook, "Due to unforeseen circumstances the radiohead show at downsview park tonight has been cancelled. Fans are advised not to make their way to the venue. Refunds will be made at point of purchase. Further information is to follow."

The show was supposed to mark the end of Radiohead's North American tour, but given the circumstances the band is likely to reschedule. More on this story as it develops.
