1994Pink Floyd plays the first of a 15-night run at Earls Court, London, England. Less than a minute after the band started playing ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, scaffolding holding 1200 fans, collapsed, dropping hundreds of people 20 feet to the ground. It took over an hour to free everyone from the twisted wreckage, ninety-six people were injured, with 36 needing hospital treatment. Pink Floyd sent a free T-shirt and a note of apology to all the fans who had been seated in the stand that collapsed.
