Elton John concert to go ahead despite Mayan anger

Organizers said a concert by Elton John in the ruins of Chichen Itza would go ahead Saturday even after the stage collapsed injuring three workers and complaints from indigenous Mayans it was irreverent and out of place. Thursday's accident, caused by a collapsing 80-meter (262-foot) metal tower, left one worker with serious leg injuries. The announcement rankled local Mayan leaders and officials, who pointed out that perhaps the accident was the work of "aluxes," the Mayan culture's equivalent of fairies, who were upset because their gods' permission for the concert was lacking
