Radiohead - Radiohead Postpone Shows

Radiohead have postponed a string of European concerts.

The 'Karma Police' hitmakers are delaying seven shows which were due to take place at the end of this month and the beginning of next following the collapse of their stage in Toronto last weekend, which resulted in the death of one crew member and injuries to three others.

They said in a statement: ''Whilst we all are dealing with the grief and shock ensuing from this terrible accident there are also many practical considerations to deal with & consequently we have to try and reschedule.''

The statement also noted that the tragedy had ''destroyed'' the group's spectacular light show, so the postponement of the shows will help put the visuals back together.

They added: ''The collapse also destroyed the light show - this show was unique and will take many weeks to replace. The collapse also caused serious damage to our backline, some elements of which are decades old and therefore hard to replace.''

New dates for the affected shows - Rome Hippodrome Capanelle, Florence Parco delle Cascine, Bologna Arena Parco Nord, Codroipo Villa Manin, Berlin Wuhlheide and St Triphon Carriere des Andonces - will be announced next Wednesday (27.06.12).

Shows scheduled from July 9 will go ahead as planned.
