Four people were injured early Friday, after a part of the stage collapsed following a Luke Bryan concert at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.
According to the Ohio State University Police Division incident report, the stage crew was tearing down the stage from the Luke Bryan concert that ended around 11 p.m. Thursday, when a portion of the stage fell over. It appears a forklift may have hit the back of the stage, causing a small portion of it to fall.
Columbus fire personnel responded to treat and transport injured workers on the scene, where according to the report, four people sustained minor injuries.
As a result, Bryan's upcoming concert in Lexington, Kentucky will be rescheduled.
"Tonight's Luke Bryan concert in Lexington, Kentucky will be rescheduled for Friday, February 21 due to damage sustained to a piece of the stage during production load out after last night’s show in Columbus, Ohio," Bryan said in a statement to The Insider. "The damage occurred after the show had ended and no fans were in the building. The tour’s team will make the necessary repairs to the production elements so the tour may continue."
