A person has been reported dead today after a stand at a Canadian gig venue collapsed just hours prior to a Radiohead gig.

According to the Toronto Star the stand at Downsview Park fell during preparation for the gig killing one, seriously injuring another and hurting two more.

Members of the public were already gathered in the venue but they were moved off site soon after the accident.

None of the band or their family members or concert goers were directly involved and the gig has been cancelled.
