NBC News reports that police responded to calls of a collapse at 5:30 p.m. (11:30 a.m. EDT). Authorities added that none of the injuries were serious, while also being unclear as to whether Aoki was on stage performing at the time of the incident.

I am saddened and shocked that a piece of the roof collapsed in an accident at the venue in Oslo tonight.— Steve Aoki (@steveaoki) August 21, 2016
It isn't the first time injuries have been sustained at one of the DJ's rowdy live performances. A fan sued Aoki last year for breaking her neck in a stage diving stunt, while three fans were crushed to death during a crowd rush at a performance in Madrid back in 2012.
My thoughts are with those injured, and I wish them a speedy recovery.— Steve Aoki (@steveaoki) August 21, 2016
