This is awful.
Jamiroquai was set to perform at the La Halle Tony Garnier in Lyon, France last night, but the show was canceled when at the last minute, a stagehand lost his balance and fell 50 feet to his death from a gantry.
Frontman Jay Kay said today:
"The band was shocked and saddened when told the news, and out of respect immediately felt the right decision was to cancel the show. A police investigation is taking place."
Absolutely heartwrenching, and so incredibly sad.
Our thoughts are with the man's family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time.
