The stage at Downsview Park in Toronto collapsed before Radiohead was set to perform, injuring three and killing one.

The CBC is reporting one of the injured was transported to Sunnybrook Hospital in serious condition while the other two were being assessed at the scene.

The concert was cancelled following the accident. It is unclear what caused the stage to collapse.

The band posted this message on their Twitter page, "Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight's at downsview park tonight has been cancelled. Fans are advised not to make their way to the venue."

Today marks the 15-year anniversary of the release of Radiohead's classic album, "OK Computer."

What's up with all these stage collapses lately? It seems like 4 or 5 over the past couple of years.

That's what happens when you have the lowest bidder stage your shows. They really need to change the standards for em. It's happening too often now. There were numerous collapses last year.

Seeing so many Canadian and Toronto news references on TMZ feels weird.
I suppose the only good that might come of this accident is that Canadians might take a break from feeling so danged super over Americans for moment.
I hope the reports that one person died aren't true.

TMZ: You need to start crediting twitter pictures properly. "Twitter" is not good enough. Put the user name.

Most of these stages are put up by pot smoking slobs.

That video couldn't be from today. The reports said that the gates hadn't opened yet. That video shows an audience in the venue. I guess verifying video doesn't matter anymore, huh? You guys are usually better than that.
