Radiohead Postpone Shows, Issue Statement


Radiohead have announced they are postponing a number of dates in June and July following the stage collapse that killed drum technician Scott Johnson before the band's scheduled show at Downsview Park in Toronto on June 16. Read the full statement below.

"Hello everyone,

As you will probably have heard the roof over the stage collapsed at our show in Toronto killing crew member Scott Johnson and injuring three other crew members. The collapse also destroyed the light show – this show was unique and will take many weeks to replace. The collapse also caused serious damage to our backline, some elements of which are decades old and therefore hard to replace.

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 the following shows:


  • 30 Roma Hippodrome Capanelle


  • 1 Firenze Parco delle Cascine
  • 3 Bologna Arena Parco Nord
  • 4 Codroipo Villa Manin
  • 6 Berlin Wuhlheide
  • 7 Berlin Wuhlhedie
  • 9 St Triphon Carriere des Andonces

    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."
