Following our performance tonight at Cape Town Stadium, we were advised that several people were injured as a result of the collapse of an advertising tower erected by Lucozade in the parking area outside the venue.

We wish to express our deep sadness and concern for those injured and our heartfelt condolences to the family of the fan who died as a result of her injuries.

Though we have had no relationship with the sponsor or the entity responsible for erecting the structure, we take the safety of our fans very seriously and our thoughts are with all of those who were affected by this tragedy.

for years it keeps saying that such things must not happen ever again need not die spectators should not die workers and technicians, although the band has no blame should not play, perhaps if they knew they would have canceled all ...or maybe I hope myself, I like to think that they wouldn't play, but who has decided put profit once again ahead of all

..Real pitty that a night as magical as it were be documented, or rather, remembered solely for an unforeseen unfortunate event that had taken place. In perspective; the true essence of the event may be conceived in various ways dependent on the context of the individual. Nonetheless, energy depletion> lucozade wearing off. Big-ups to LP... *Green-T
