The complaint stems from the rappers' joint Summer Sixteen in 2016.
A stage rigger and carpenter for Drake and Future’s Summer Sixteen tour is suing the production company he worked for and Live Nation, which promoted the 2016 tour. Julian Aguirre is suing the two entities after he says he fell off the stage that he had warned others was no completed.
According to The Blast, Aguirre said in court filings that he was severely injured on Sept. 24, 2016 when he was asked to install a new “header” to replace a piece in the “top set” of Drake’s stage. Aguirre claims he recognized “that the header did not look finished, as it was missing tabs used to lock it in place” at the SAP Center stop in San Jose, Calif.
Aguirre says he tried to warn his employers that about the potential danger of the situation, but “was told, ‘Shut up and put the piece in.’”
