BEIJING —

A seating section has collapsed at a concert by Hong Kong pop star Wang Fei in southwest China, injuring 64 people.

The state-run Beijing News says concertgoers suffered cuts, broken bones and head injuries after scaffolding behind the stage broke apart Friday night. Those seated in the area fell about 5 feet (1.5 meters) to the concrete floor of the city of Chongqing's Olympic stadium.

The paper says none of the injuries is life-threatening. The concert has been rescheduled for Monday.

Wang, also known as Faye Wong, was one of the Chinese-speaking world's biggest stars in the 1980s and 1990s and still boasts a massive fan base in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Chinese communities overseas.
