A big video panel fell during a concert by Hong Kong boy band Mirror on Thursday, injuring at least two dancers, one of them seriously, and prompting authorities to ban the group from performing pending an investigation.
Video released on social media shows the screen falling on the dancer during the band's performance. Hong Kong media reported that three members of the audience were also hurt.
None of the 12 members of Mirror were hurt in the accident at the Hong Kong Coliseum, next to Victoria Harbor.
The city government had ordered the band, which was putting on a run of 12 shows at the venue, to postpone its upcoming performances.
Culture Secretary Kevin Yeung said shows at the venue are suspended until its stage structure is deemed safe.
