Stuff goes on in the music business that would be banned in construction in those countries. People work ridiculous hours in dangerous conditions, and there's a lot of macho bravado which makes people do stuff they shouldn't. I've been there and seen it. Nobody should have been anywhere near the stage when cranes were lifting the roof on. I hope there will be better safety standards at these kind of events to avoid this sort of tragedy repeating itself.

The music and concert industry is full of staff who party hard and probably are not at 100% attention when working. My question would be "will Madonna cancel her show out of respect to the dead or will the show go on".
