VL.RU has uploaded quality video footage (see below) of SCORPIONS and ALICE COOPER's June 24, 2009 performances at the Avangard Stadium in Vladivostok, Russia as part of the "Monsters Of Rock" tour, also featuring KINGDOM COME and THE RASMUS.
As previously reported, the June 20 "Monsters Of Rock" concert in Novosibirsk, Russia was canceled after the stage collapsed a few hours before the show was supposed to start.
"The bulky musical and lighting equipment that all the participants have brought along must have been too heavy, and the metallic support beams just gave way," workers who discovered the collapsed stage early morning June 20 told Interfax.
No injuries were reported, but some music gear already installed on the stage was substantially damaged.
12,000 tickets — priced between one and eight thousand rubles ($32.00 and $256.00) each — were sold for the event.
The damage resulting from the stage collapse has been estimated by the Monsters Of Rock festival organizers to be as high as 20 million rubles (more than $645,000).
The "Monsters Of Rock" tour will wrap up with a concert in Moscow on June 28 at the Olimpiysky sports complex.
