Madonna just released a statement about the accident, saying, "I am devastated to have just received this tragic news. My prayers go out to those who were injured and their families along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news." The concert has been canceled, and our thoughts are with those affected by this tragic accident.

From other news sources: "The show was cancelled because "rebuilding a stage, it's not possible," said Maurice Di Nocera, Marseille city councilor in charge of major events."Nine injured, two very serious, four others with multiple fractures, three minor. Sounds like a pretty horrible accident.

that's horrible. there are so many risks involved in constructing stages that you're hearing about things going wrong all the time. such a shame and i hope that the families are doing ok.
