According to the Chicago, Illinois police department, three concert goers were injured this past Saturday, February 8, 2014 due to a ceiling collapse in Chicago’s Concord Music Hall.
The incident took place during a music show by DJ Datsik. The booming bass from the loud speakers set up in the music hall began to shake ceiling panels loose at approximately 1:20 a.m. on Saturday. Dust and plaster from the ceiling began to rain on the audience. A short time later, two large panels fell from the ceiling on the heads of the revelers.
According to the emergency responders, three men were rushed to the emergency rooms of nearby hospitals with non-life threatening personal injuries. The music hall has closed, pending a structural evaluation, repairs, and a building re-inspection. According to the structural engineer hired by the owner of the music hall, the loud music likely contributed to the ceiling collapse. IT remains unclear whether the music hall had complied with Chicago’s housing regulations at the time of the accident.
In the meantime, DJ Datsik has promised to come back “bigger and badder,” but hopefully not bringing down the house in such a literal way.
