Stage for Madonna show collapses, one dead
MARSEILLE, France (Reuters) - A stage being constructed for a Madonna concert collapsed in the southern French city of Marseille on Thursday, killing one person and injuring six, police said.
The concert at the Velodrome stadium, home to the Olympique Marseille soccer team, was scheduled for July 19 but has now been canceled, a local official said.
Technicians were setting up the stage ahead of the show when part of the roof collapsed.
