    This is of interest to me because I heard the stage collapsed  during a heavy thunderstorm, probably the same line of storms that blew through central IL yesterday afternoon, and part of the stage was blown onto the crowd. As part of my job at the U of IL we set up similar stages for events around campus so I am waiting for the specific details.

      Read a lot on this this morning, and somewhere it said State Police had warned the crowd 15 min earlier and preparations were made to move crowd into a nearby coliseum however the evacuation order had not yet been given.

      There's lightning in the background after the collapse. Looks too close to a still large crowd in the metal stands.
