It’s official. Cheap Trick have stage fright and have cancelled a gig because of it.

The band has pulled out of their September 1 show in Vancouver, Canada because the same company that made the stage that collapsed during their show on July 17 made the stage being used for the Ottawa Bluesfest.

A statement at the Cheap Trick website reads, “Staging for PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) in Vancouver, BC is provided by Mega-Stage, (Berger), who also provided the MBNA Stage that fell on Cheap Trick at Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest on July 17th, 2011.

“All potential alternatives have been explored by the band and promoter and were exhausted, leaving Cheap Trick with no other option than to cancel their September 1st engagement at the PNE.

“Unless current investigation(s) prove otherwise, the band will not, as a matter of principle, but more importantly, as a matter of safety, appear on a Berger stage in the future”.

8 people were injured when the stage came crashing down on July 17 but luckily the band was unharmed.

The disaster was the second time a stage by Groupe Berger has fallen down. It also happened on June 30, 2009 at the Quebec comedy festival.
