It was the last thing any Toronto Radiohead fan expected as they headed toward Downsview Park.
Mid-afternoon, the stage where the British band was set to perform Saturday night collapsed, killing Radiohead's drum technician and injuring several others.
The show was immediately canceled and many took to Twitter, Facebook and news forums to express their shock and condolences to the family of Scott Johnson.
On Sunday, the band released a statement saying they were "shattered" over the death of 33-year-old drum tech, while many are asking how something like this could have happened at such a high profile event.
A similar question was asked last July after a stage collapsed at the Ottawa Bluesfest during a Cheap Trick set, injuring eight.
According to an industry expert, the answer is clear.
