7 Staff Injured During Dismantling of B’z Fukuoka Paypay Dome Tour


B’z announced that while performing the Fukuoka leg of their tour, B’z LIVE-GYM Pleasure 2023 -STARS-, 7 staff members were injured due to an accident while dismantling their setup, putting the Osaka leg of the tour originally supposed to be on 9/21, 23 and 24 up in the air.

A part of the stage set up reportedly fell down suddenly as the crewmembers were getting ready to wrap up. While the injuries were severe enough to warrant going to the hospital for all 7, fortunately none of the injuries were considered life threatening. B’z has stated that while they would like to make an announcement by the end of Tuesday, the circumstances may warrant a further delay in their deliberations on what to do next.

Tour setups are notoriously complex, and rider notes frequently will throw in clauses to ensure that people setting up the stage truly read through the entire thing due to accidents like this being a serious risk.
