Live Nation stage collapse: correction

June 20, 2012

As noted in revisions and an update to today's original post on the fatal stage collapse at the Toronto Radiohead concert promoted by Live Nation, the story contained two errors.

The company was not the promoter of the Indiana Sugarland concert that claimed seven lives last summer; it sold sponsorships to the event and was named in the civil lawsuit filed by victims’ families along with the band’s ownership company, ESG Security, the stagehands’ union and other companies.

Also, while Live Nation has a hand in this year’s Big Valley Jamboree at the Camrose Exhibition Centre in Canada, Panhandle Promotions, not Live Nation, was the promoter of the 2009 concert that claimed one life and injured 15 people.

We regret the errors.
