I really don’t have much to say about this incident. We’ve all seen the photos and videos, and I’ve gone to the point of calculating how much weight worth of speakers were hanging from the stage. I certainly have my opinions of how I think the stage was too high, and had more weight hung on it than was necessary. The fact is – I’m not a structural engineer. I have seen these stages get set up and torn down, and quite frankly, I don’t like them one bit.
As tour managers we’re all going to have to be more diligent.
