Those attending Steve Aoki’s concert in Norway on Aug. 21 were in for a horrifying surprise when the venue’s roof collapsed, injuring 15 audience members. Read Steve’s message following the accident here.
Steve Aoki had a show at the Sentrum Scene on Aug. 21, but before things could even get underway, the venue’s roof collapsed around 5:30 p.m. local time, according to NBC News. It is unknown if the DJ was performing at the time of the incident, but it resulted in chaos erupting within the crowd, as 15 were left injured.
None of the injuries were serious, police confirm to the news site, but among those hurt were 13 Norwegians, a French native and a German native.
“I am saddened and shocked that a piece of the roof collapsed in an accident at the venue in Oslo tonight,” Steve tweeted. “My thoughts are with those injured and I wish them a speedy recovery.” He didn’t let the accident get in the way of his busy schedule, though — following this tragedy, he jetted straight to Ibiza, and on Aug. 22, he tweeted that he was flying back to the States to do press for his Netflix documentary, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.
Steve has been working on I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead for three years now, and it finally debuted on Aug. 19. Since the release, he’s gotten tons of love from other musicians, including Travis Barker and Lil Jon, and we’re definitely intrigued in checking it out!
Following his press for the documentary, Steve will head back overseas for a string of tour dates in Europe, with some dates in the U.S. sprinkled in between. It’s certainly going to be a busy fall for the 38-year-old, and hopefully there are no more scary incidents like this one!
