MADRID (Reuters) - Two workers died on Friday after part of the set from a Rolling Stones concert collapsed on top of them as they were dismantling it, emergency services said. A third man was seriously injured after four people fell from a 10-metre (33 ft) structure that gave way as the team helped take it down after Thursday night's concert in Madrid. Identities of the victims were not given, but about half the workers dismantling the set were English-speaking and travelling with the Rolling Stones tour, emergency services said.
