Eminem Show Canceled After Accident
Eminem was scheduled to headline the Pukkelpop Festival in Pastels, Belgium but the show had to be suspended after a stage collapsed and killed three people. A storm hit the area just as the band Smith Westerns was set to perform. The stage collapse immediately, killing three and injuring more than 40. According to reports, high winds caused large screens and other stage materials to collapse into the audience.
Artists like The Foo Fighters, The Offspring, Wiz Khalifa, D-12, Tinie Tempah and numerous others were also slated to perform.
All performances for tonight have been suspended as organizers were debating whether or not to discontinue with the entire festival after the deaths. But it was subsequently announced that the Eminem show would take place tomorrow.
"We will clean up the grounds tonight and ensure that everything is safe again so that we can start tomorrow at 11 am with a new start for Pukkelpop 2011," organizers said.
