Peter Frampton/Yes Shows Canceled After Casino Tent Collapses In Oklahoma

According to NewsOK, two contracted crew members were taken to a hospital for treatment Tuesday after an events tent was toppled by high winds as they prepared for the Peter Frampton/Yes show at Lucky Star Casino in Concho, Oklahoma.

There were six reported injuries in all, none of which were life-threatening. Most of those injured had scratches and bruises, though one man was taken to a hospital with a broken leg,

Frampton, who was scheduled to perform at 8 p.m., was not in the tent at the time.

Lucky Star Casino spokesman Mark Rogers is quoted as saying, ""We're just thankful there weren't more people in the tent. We were expecting 5,000 people tonight. That would have been absolutely horrible."

The concert will be rescheduled, casino officials said.

The incident has also affected tomorrow night's show (July 7th) at Sandia Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which has also been canceled. No word yet as to whether that concert will be rescheduled as well.
