We’ve already given you a list of reasons to love that talented, lovable and zany duo Brothers Osborne, but did we mention that their incredible music can really bring down the house?
John and TJ Osborne, or Brothers Osborne, played a great show at The Egyptian Theater in Boise, Idaho on Nov. 27 and would have loved to come back out to the appreciative crowd to play an encore to their set. But, there was one problem. The ceiling began crumbling during their performance and pieces began to fall down onto the stage.
The duo shared video on their Instagram page of one sizable chunk that came crashing down behind TJ and in front of the drum riser. The good-natured brothers wrote, “Boise! Had a blast tonight. We had an encore worked up for y’all, but the house literally started coming down. Can’t wait to come back!” Another picture shows one piece of the ceiling about the size of an orange.
No one was injured from the falling debris and, obviously, the boys are eager to return to Idaho. Theaters such as The Egyptian and the beautiful Stiefel Theater in Salina, Kansas are popular venues for rising acts and most were built in the 1920s and 1930s, so, unless they’ve undergone recent renovations, like Atlanta’s Fox Theater, their structures are showing theeaffects of age and use. Book a hot band in there and the combination of acoustics and an enthusiastic audience can cause some unintentional damage.
Hopefully repairs to the historic theater won’t be too pricey and John and TJ can return for that encore after all.
