Less than an hour ago, reports of Madonna's 'Sticky & Sweet' stage set collapse in Marseilles, France surfaced; the tragic accident has left one person dead and at least six injured.

Madonna's 'Sticky & Sweet' stage collapse came as workers were preparing the set for a Sunday concert. The concert has since been canceled.

Implications - Musicians are increasingly adopting high-tech stage sets to attract concertgoers; season after season, stars continually attempt to one-up each other. Unfortunately, the physical and technical limitations of setting up elaborate stages night after night come with a toll. This stage set collapse, which left several technicians dead or injured, put a major damper on Madonna's tour and caused the star to take a major PR hit.
