So frightening! And very Phantom of the Opera!
A.R. Rahman, the Bollywood film composer behind the Oscar-winning soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire, was involved in a serious accident on Saturday on his A.R. Rahman Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour in Detroit!
Apparently, the Pontiac Silverdome was not strong enough to support some of the concert's light structures, and one broke free and crashed onto the stage!
"It’s a miracle my team escaped with minor injuries."
Seriously! Absolutely insane!
Rahman has rescheduled the remaining tour dates for September.
We're relieved that no one was seriously injured! This could have been much, much worse!
Update: Reps for the Silverdome are stressing that the unfortunate issue had nothing to do with the Silverdome's infrastructure, but rather with the rig Rahman's team had set up. We're just glad no one was seriously hurt.
