She said 19 people were injured, with 12 hospitalized, on Wednesday after the temporary promotional billboard structure collapsed outside Cape Town's Green Point Stadium. Police are investigating.

The American rock band said in a statement: "We wish to express our deep sadness and concern for those injured and our heartfelt condolences to the family of the fan who died as a result of her injuries."

The band said they had no relationship with the sponsor or entity responsible for the structure.

The band will perform in Johannesburg on Nov. 10.
