A concert commemorating the 15th anniversary of the release of Radiohead's classic album OK Computer turned tragic today when a pre-show accident killed one and injured several more.

The band was set to play in Toronto at Downsview Park Saturday evening, but had to cancel their performance after a portion of the stage collapsed shortly after 4 p.m. EST Toronto Police confirmed to E! News.

The news and cancellation was announced via Downsview Park's Twitter, which informed concertgoers:  "CONCERT IS CANCELLED. Details to come from Livenation shortly. ‪#Radiohead‬ ‪#Toronto‬."

The band also took to Twitter to alert fans: "Due to unforeseen circumstances tonight's show at Downsview Park has been cancelled. Fans are advised not to make their way to the venue."

Toronto Police have yet to comment on the full scope of injuries or damage, tweeting: "We are not confirming the number or nature of injures at this time at #Downsview Park. We will provide that later when all facts are in."

Concert goers also took to Twitter, tweeting photos of the collapsed stage. 

Toronto Police are still investigating what caused the collapse, updating followers: "Toronto Fire Services and contractors are securing the remainder of the stage, so that a full investigation can occur safely."
