Watch: Ottawa Bluesfest Main Stage Falls Down

Written by John Ritchie on July 18, 2011

A scary video has been posted online from the Ottawa Bluesfest in Canada when a severe storm caused the main stage at the festival to fall over. Cheap Trick were 20 minutes into their set performing their hit I Want You To Want Me when a huge wind actually blew the stage over.

People were quickly evacuated from the event and all remaining sets were cancelled including Death Cab For Cutie’s headline performance.

One man suffered serious injuries after a piece of the stage went through his abdomen, while two others were taken to hospital; all the Cheap Trick members are OK.
