The incident occurred when the crew members were dismantling the equipment. Reportedly a forklift hit the stage which caused two sections to buckle and crash down. The four injured crew members had been hospitalized with minor injuries and were released shortly afterward.

Bryan’s show that was scheduled to happen on Jan. 17, 2014 in Lexington, Kentucky had to be rescheduled for Feb. 21, 2014. Bryan's rep said in a statement following the accident that "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 statement continued by explaining "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." Bryan’s website also posted the statement for fans adding “Previously purchased tickets for Lexington, Kentucky will be honored for the reschedule date on Friday, February 21st.”
