Touring personnel have been going to outdoor venues for decades facing outdoor conditions that include scaffold staging and roof systems. During this time there have been incidents and accidents but they were few and far between. Usually, the reports would come from some third-world country and all of us who heard them would gasp and murmur that they had been at the same venue and were wondering when it would happen–the roof coming down due to weather conditions. Here in North America we have seen ourselves as above this, until the last few years.
