A storm hit Sonisphere, a metal-music festival in Finland last week during set up for Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden, causing extensive damage.

Forty people were injured, two critically; two stages were damaged, one beyond repair and ten's of thousands of dollars worth of kit was ruined.

Motley Crue were forced to cancel their set as their entire kit was irreparable, Iggy Pop performed an acoustic set becasue of damage to his equipment and Iron Maiden came on stage late after stage-hands used 40 hair-dryers to dry-out their gear.

This video was taken a few minutes after the storm hit and shows some of the damage.
