When the Dog Bites, When the Bee Stings

Clear Channel and a producer called Sing Along Productions were sentenced and fined 28,000 pounds at Birmingham Crown Court in the UK yesterday for their negligence in a 2003 incident in which 30 audience members, many dressed up as nuns, gathered together on a stage for a best-dressed-nun contest during a singalong version of The Sound of Music, and the stage collapsed. Nobody was killed, but the singing had to stop.
