So Cheap Trick isn’t really metal. However, they’ve influenced a fair share of hard rock acts and have toured with pretty much every rock band from the 70’s. Plus, this is pretty crazy news.
The main stage at the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest collapsed last night moments after Cheap Trick had been evacuated from the stage mid-way through their performance due to an intense storm. While the crowd was rightfully frightened, no one was injured.
You can watch fan filmed footage of the stage collapsing up top, as well as a news report after the jump. You can also take a look at photos taken from the festival after the collapse online. To find out more information about the incident, you can read the Ottawa Business Journal’s full report. We’re happy to hear, though, that no one in the band, crew, or audience was injured during this horrifying incident.
