Luke Bryan Stage Collapses On Second Night of Tour

From Canada's "Cool Country Countdown:"

CAPITOL NASHVILLE's LUKE BRYAN has postponed a concert in LEXINGTON, KY TONIGHT (1/17), due to a stage collapse at his show in OHIO last NIGHT (1/16) that sent several crew members to the hospital, according to TMZ. This was only the second performance on BRYAN's 2014 "THAT'S MY KIND OF NIGHT TOUR."

At a press conference this week Luke talked about the stage and how cool it was.

Law enforcement officials said that a forklift crashed into a portion of the stage after the performance, tearing it down and destroying production equipment. Four crew members, which were made up of members of BRYAN's crew and local arena employees, were taken to the hospital with injuries.

According to WBNS-TV in Columbus, the incident occurred around midnight after Bryan's show at the Schottenstein Center on Ohio State University's campus. The injured suffered minor foot or arm injuries. WKYT-TV adds that those hurt were tearing down the set after the concert. No fans were in the building at the time.

A show scheduled for TOMORROW (1/18) in KNOXVILLE is still on schedule.
