Radiohead Return To Toronto Seeking Answers Over Fatal Stage Collapse

Radiohead Return To Toronto Seeking Answers Over Fatal Stage Collapse Radiohead Return To Toronto Seeking Answers Over Fatal Stage Collapse

Radiohead returned to Toronto on Thursday night for the first time since their drum technician was killed in a 2012 stage collapse, and the band blasted those responsible for his death when they took the stage.

"Six years ago, we wanted to do a show in Toronto", Yorke said, before their last song.

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway told BBC's Newsnight this week of the band's frustration that no one had been held accountable. "In your city, the silence is fu*king deafening". And while it was mostly respected by the crowd, a few made a decision to interrupt by shouting and cheering, while other fans just yelled, "shut up".

He then asked the audience to hold a moment of silence in Johnson's name.

Since 1993, Radiohead has released 9 albums, including their critically acclaimed Pablo Honey (1993), The Bends (1995), and OK Computer (1997).

The band is scheduled to play Scotiabank Arena on Thursday and Friday night.

Radiohead Return To Toronto Seeking Answers Over Fatal Stage Collapse

British drum technician Scott Johnson, 33, was killed on June 16, 2012, when part of a massive stage structure crashed down just hours before Radiohead was due to perform at Downsview Park in Toronto's north end. Three others were injured.

The subsequent trial was derailed when the presiding judge declared he had lost jurisdiction over the case given his appointment to a higher court.

Last September, those charges were stayed after a judge ruled the matter took too long to get to trial. "There were 13 charges dropped against Live Nation, Optex Staging and the engineer, Domenic Cugliar". So with that court case breaking down, there will be no real answers.

He said without any answers it's impossible to put measures in place that could prevent a similar accident from happening again.

Selway said prior to the concert the band didn't feel comfortable playing Toronto again until this week.
