Canadian Ministry of Labour investigators have launched a study into the stage collapse that resulted in the death of 33 year old Scott Johnson at the weekend and the band's Ticker Tape Touring LLP is among the four companies involved, alongside concert promoter Live Nation.

Ministry spokesman Matt Blajer tells the Toronto Star, "We’re still trying to figure out who owns what, who’s responsible for what.

"You’ve got lighting technicians, sound technicians, the band’s people; we’re trying to figure out who worked for whom."
