AR Rahman 'thanks God' no one was killed in stage collapse
London: Music composer AR Rahman has thanked God that nobody from his crew was killed when his stage collapsed last month. Rahman's staff was injured and instruments were destroyed when a lighting rig collapsed
during preparations for a gig in Detroit. "I thank God they're all still alive,"
the BBC quoted him as saying. The incident forced the composer to postpone several
American and European dates on his 'Jai Ho' tour. At the time, Rahman said the
accident had "a profound effect" on his band, dancers and crew. "But it is the
fans to whom I send the most heartfelt apology. It was a stressful time," he added.
Rahman has rescheduled shows in North America for September. But on Tuesday he
announced that shows planned for Zurich, Paris and Mannheim this weekend have
been cancelled "due to circumstances beyond our control". However, he has promised
to go back to the US to perform later this year.|
