UPDATE Sunday, 6/17, 11:50 AM PDT. We had the name of the crew member killed in the Toronto collapse yesterday afternoon but opted to wait until we were sure his family had been notified before posting it. Drum Tech Scott Johnson was killed in the collapse. EMS personnel declared him dead at the scene. Brian Collins was transported to a local hospital with a gash on his head, a concussion and both ankles broken. Two others were treated at the scene and released.

Our thought are with the families and crew fam of both Scott and Brian.

If something isn’t right SPEAK UP. If no one will listen then WALK AWAY and call the authorites and the media. If we can’t do that then this shit will continue.

UPDATE: Sat. 7:21 PM.    Brian Collins is the rigger that was injured during the stage collapse in Toronto today. gash on his head, concussion, both ankles broken.

Mike Hirsch just spoke with Brian’s dad Billy. Gonna be tough but looks like he should pull through. We’ll keep you posted.

And another new photo. Taken today before the collapse. You can still se riggers in the scaff.

UPDATE Sat. 3:06  Aerial video of stage. You will have to sit through a commercial to get to it. Not us. It’s the TV station that posted this.


UPDATE Sat. 2:47 PDT.  Hollywood Reporter is saying the person killed was crew.


Info very sketchy still. Stand by for updates. This happened BEFORE doors. Which means the chances are very high that the dead and injured are crew. Updates as we get info.
