Luke Bryan's 'That's My Kind Of Night Tour' started with a big accident that resulted in a partial stage collapse. The incident happened AFTER the first night of the 2014 concert tour in Ohio.

According to the report, the stage crew was tearing down the stage from the Luke Bryan concert when a portion of the stage fell over."
As of now, 4 people were injured and Luke Bryan's second stop on the tour is postponed. According to Luke Bryan's Official Facebook: "Lexington, KY concert is POSTPONED for TONIGHT. It is RESCHEDULED for FRI., FEB. 21. Go to www.lukebryan.com for more details."
According to TMZ, "Law enforcement sources tell us ... a forklift crashed into a portion of the stage during take down, and it crumpled. We're told 4 people -- including guys from Luke's crew as well as arena staff -- were taken to a nearby hospital with injuries. Their current medical status is unclear."
LukeBryan.com has released the following official statement: "Cleveland, Ohio (January 17, 2014) -- Tonight’s Luke Bryan concert in Lexington, Kentucky will be rescheduled for Friday, February 21 due to damage sustained to a piece of the stage during production load out after last night’s show in Columbus, Ohio. The damage occurred after the show had ended and no fans were in the building. The tour’s team will make the necessary repairs to the production elements so the tour may continue. Previously purchased tickets for Lexington, Kentucky will be honored for the reschedule date on Friday, February 21st ."
Most reports are claiming that everyone is ok and the crew will recover quickly. Thankfully, this was nothing like the disaster Sugarland had a few years ago at the Indiana State Fair.
