Brothers Osborne embarked on their first headlining tour this Fall, and while the Grammy-nominated duo has received rave reviews, they've also brought the house down at multiple venues.

Literally.

While getting ready to play at the Fox Theatre in Hanford, California over the weekend, part of the ceiling at the venue fell onto the stage right where Lucie Silvas, one of CMT's Next Women of Country and opener for this leg of the tour, was about to start the show. 

The show had to be canceled due to safety concerns, but not wanting to leave their fans high and dry, Brothers Osborne announced that they would play a 30-minute acoustic show on top of their tour bus in front of the venue. 

“If the house falls down, we’ll figure out a way to at least show our appreciation to our fans because at the end of the day, it sounds cliché, but none of us can do what we do without them," John Osborne said to NewsChannel 5 over Skype on Monday. 

This wasn't the first time the ceiling has fallen onto the stage for Brothers Osborne and Lucie Silvas. The incident at the Fox Theatre was the second ceiling incident to happen in the past two weeks. 

"We’ve played thousands of gigs collectively and it’s never, ever happened," Osborne said. 

“I don’t know of any band that’s had that happen twice within two weeks," Silvas added. 

Fans weren't disappointed, as the vocal duo and Silvas performed some of their favorite songs from the top of the tour bus. 

“The crowd loved it, they felt like the brothers hadn’t just given up on them. They’d gone up there and done something especially for them that had never been done before," Silvas said. 

Brothers Osborne and Lucie Silvas have been set to play Marathon Music Works in Nashville on January 18, and tickets are still available.
