Due to a problem with the stage, which was found to be unsafe for use, the two concerts of David Gilmour in Venice, Italy had to be postponed.
Gilmour, the legendary Pink Floyd guitarist, was scheduled to perform in St. Mark's Square Friday and Saturday August 4th and 5th. However, the gigs were cancelled soon as a stage problem was discovered before a sound check on Friday night.
It is said that one of the columns supporting the stage was slightly angled, and therefore unable to hold the weight of the lights and other stage equipment.
What's more, the next night's performance was quickly canceled as well and both have been rescheduled for next weekend, with original tickets still being valid for the new dates, this Friday and Saturday.
