French stage hand dies after falling from gantry
Jamiroquai cancelled a gig in Lyon last night (March 24) due to a crew member falling to his death at the concert venue.
The band had been due to perform at La Halle Tony Garnier, but announced on their website, Jamiroquai.co.uk, that due to the tragedy the show was pulled.
The Sun reports that a French stage hand fell 50 feet from a gantry above the stage after he lost his footing. His name has not been made public, while local police are said to be investigating the incident.
A statement from the band explained that they were “shocked and saddened” by the news and had pulled the show “as a mark of respect”.
