  • What a tragedy. As a former stagehand, I can tell you this hits close to home. My heart goes out to all involved. Setting these shows up can be a dangerous business, but you never expect it to be THIS dangerous.

    Radiohead is an incredible band. You just have to ignore the whining by Thom. (And ignore his dumbass political views.) But he's a unique vocalist, and the musicianship in the rest of the band is stunning.

  • Is that their own stage, erected for each show?

      The stage itself, that is, the platform, usually six feet high, that the band plays on, is usually provided by the venue. All the other stuff--the lighting trusses, sound equipment, etc., belongs to the band and gets carried from show to show.

    • @cleetusawreetus - thank you for the reply. It must be quite a project for them to set it up.

    • @KingVolcano Many bands rent or lease all of it from sound stage and lighting companies that specialize in doing that.Along with the tractor trailers to carry from one venue to another.The bands usually own very little themselves since they can play in different venues or different shows from one album to the next or place to place.

      Dang! Sometimes I don't see replies right away...

      Trucks roll in around 8 a.m. Bodies in motion--about 40% road crew, 60% local. The roadies know how it all goes together, the locals do the grunt work. Everything is in the air by noon or one o'clock, at which time they start tweaking the lights and audio to fit the venue. By four in the afternoon it is concert-ready. Usually a sound check just before dinner time, then gates open, then--showtime. As the last band member is leaving More..

  • If that's what it takes to stop a Radiohead show, then fair enough.
