Cape Town - The Linkin Park concert at the Cape Town Stadium got underway on Wednesday despite an incident nearby where 20 people were injured.

Outside the stadium, an energy drink branding tower was blown over by a strong gust of wind just before 19:00, falling on people below.

Reports say the majority of the injured were women doing promotional work.

"The City's emergency services, including doctors, paramedics and disaster risk management staff assisted immediately.

"The injured were treated on scene and have been taken to nearby hospitals for further medical attention," according to a statement by the City of Cape Town.

"The remainder of the structure was dismantled and the commanding officer at the Venue Operations Centre declared the event site safe shortly afterwards."

The concert went ahead as scheduled, however, and no announcements of the incident were made inside the stadium.
