Luke Bryan‘s sold-out show at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. has been postponed after a stage collapse resulted in injuries.

The show, which was scheduled for Friday night (Jan. 17), was the second scheduled concert of the ‘Drink a Beer’ singer’s That’s My Kind of Night Tour 2014, which kicked off Thursday night in Columbus, Ohio. Lee Brice and Cole Swindell are the special guests on the tour.

According to NBC channel 4 in Columbus, the stage collapse happened around midnight on Thursday night (Jan. 16), after Bryan had finished his gig at the Schottenstein Center on the Ohio State University campus. Firefighters and rescue workers were called to the scene after a portion of the stage collapsed.

A report from Ohio State University Police Department states Kyle W. Davis, 47, of Columbus, sustained a minor injury to his left foot; Leonard G. Devrijer, 49, of Columbus, sustained a minor injury to his left foot; Andrew J. Gammon, 26, of Nashville, Tennessee, received a minor injury to his left forearm and Steven J. Meyers, 41, of Bremen, also sustained a minor injury.

Preliminary reports suggest the collapse may have been caused by a forklift striking the back of the stage while it was being torn down.

The Rupp Arena posted the following tweet on Friday morning: “The Luke Bryan concert tonight has been postponed. A rescheduled date will be announced shortly. More info on http://RuppArena.com  soon.”
