Glad the guys are okay, but so sad for those who suffered loss and injury.

Unhappy Re: Pukkelpop Drama

We get so geared up and happy day by day for these guys and their great journeys and treks to festivals everywhere over here in the States, and then Life just happens and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Today, and onwards, we send all our condolences and heartfelt wishes to those who were hurt or worse and to their families and loved ones as well as to Belgium and all those, including our beloved Foo Fighters who saw this tragedy first hand.

May safer journeys and healing forces prevail in Europe and around the world and may better days come in the future...

What is the deal with all these recent stage collapses anyways, there has to be some kind of link between them somewhere. Manufacturer. Maybe? At any rate it is completely ridiculous.

Thoughts go out to all those affected

Man, this is awful.
I really hope the ones injured recover soon! And really what's up with all these collapses lately?

Thanks for the info, Jill. Good to know the Guys and crew are safe, but I feel so terrible about those that were injured or didn't make it. I also can't imagine the band would still play after this.

This is such sad news.
This is like the 4th stage collapse due to strong winds I've seen reported this year... It's getting a bit ridiculous that festivals keep the shows going even after warnings of strong weather.

Mother Nature at her worst...Hope all of our Belgium friends have stayed out of harms way.

When did all these helium stage surrounds start being used? (I'm assuming they're helium, don't know anything about them) They appear to be a real problem IMO.

What a tragedy!

A friend of mine is there. I spoke to him yesterday. Everyone is shook up by this. They couldn't even sleep last night because of the rain and all the crashed tents

The official numbers now say 4 dead and at least 70 injured.

This morning I read that they decided to cancel the whole festival.

I've been going to festivals for about 20 years now, and I've never seen anything like this.

My heart goes out to all the people involved!
