6 Injured, Peter Frampton Concert Canceled After Stage Collapsed at Lucky Star
CONCHO, Oklahoma -- Lucky Star officials have canceled the Yes, Peter Frampton concert at the casino after strong winds caused the stage to collapse Tuesday afternoon.
"It's a very sound structure. It's capable of handling winds up to 80 miles per hour," said Mark Rodgers, Lucky Star Casino Marketing.
Six workers were injured. Two were taken to the hospital, one worker suffered a broken leg. Others say it's a storm that came out of nowhere.
"This was a single gust of wind that did this. And a minute later there's not an ounce of wind left," said a stage worker.
Event officials said 10,000 tickets were sold to Tuesday's concert that was set to start at 8 p.m.
The concert will be rescheduled for a later date, but refunds are not being offered.
Peter Frampton took to his Twitter page to discuss the concert's cancellation.
"Stage collapsed at Lucky Star venue. All crew are safe but gear damaged. Show cancelled! On way there to see for ourselves," Frampton said via Twitter.
