One person was killed today and seven injured while building Madonna’s “Sticky and Sweet” set for her upcoming show in Marseille. The roof of the stage was allegedly being lifted by four cranes and became unbalanced, causing one of the cranes to barrel down along with the roof.
Madonna’s responded from Udine, Italy (where she was rehearsing) that, “I am devastated to have just received this tragic news.”
“My prayers go out to those who were injured and their families,” she continued, “along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news.”
The sold-out show has been canceled. [E! Online]
