PRAGUE (Reuters) - An accident involving one of the trucks carrying concert equipment for George Michael forced the singer to cancel a show in Prague on Saturday, the Web site of a Czech newspaper reported.

The daily’s Web site (www.idnes.cz) quoted concert promoter Petr Novak as saying the truck, which crashed while travelling through Romania, was carrying special sections of the stage.

“Unfortunately a large part of the special podium remained trapped in the truck and it was not possible to replace it,” Novak was quoted as saying.

He added that he had no further details of the accident or when the concert would be rescheduled.

Michael has been in Prague since Thursday evening and was not involved in the accident.
