Panic - Panic! At The Disco Concert Evacuated

Panic! At The Disco's concert in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday night (07Feb14) had to be evacuated after the venue's floor began to crack.

Hundreds of fans were ushered out of the city's historic Tabernacle venue just two songs into the show when the building's floor gave way.

Video footage taken at the gig shows the moment the floor cracked under the weight of the crowd, and fire marshals began evacuating the audience from the venue.

Gig-goer John Anderson told Ajc.com, "The situation could have been much worse and a large crack developing in a floor with hundreds of people on it is a major problem. As somebody who was on the floor at the time, I am very appreciative that an expert was there doing their job so well, and that helped keep us safe."

The rest of the concert was cancelled and the band subsequently apologised for the disaster in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "Atlanta you rocked so hard we literally broke the floor and you set the record for the shortest... show ever! Glad no one got hurt."

Singer Brandon Urie added, "We broke the venue with our floor collapsing rock!... But don't worry. We're working on rescheduling the show."

Country rocker Corey Smith was due to play at the venue on Saturday (08Feb14), but his show was also cancelled while structural engineers worked on the flooring problem.
