Fan Dies At Bring Me The Horizon Concert In London
Bring Me The Horizon issued a statement following the reported death of a fan during the band's concert at Alexandra Palace in London on Friday night (November 30th). The statement said, "Words cannot express how horrified we are feeling this evening after hearing about the death of a young man at our show last night. Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones at this terrible time. We will comment further in due course." The venue issued its own statement, saying, "A medical incident occurred at last night's Bring Me The Horizon concert. Our thoughts and condolences are with the individual's family and we would like to express our deepest sympathy to them. We hope you can appreciate we cannot provide any further comment at this time." In a couple of since-deleted tweets, SHVPES vocalist Griffin Dickinson -- son of Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson -- wrote, "Last night at a BMTH show I saw a kid die. He was carried out by 3 dudes & paramedics tried to resuscitate him to no avail. Please please please look out for people around you." Griffin added, "Please please please look out for people around you. Don't leave it up for someone else. If someone looks unwell, CHECK on them. In any situation, on a tube, at a gig, whatever . . . Don't be afraid to call an ambulance. Don't act like it ain't your business. ACT on it. Rest in peace to that dude. Thoughts are with his family rn." No further information regarding the incident was available at press time. Fans at the show reported on Twitter that security allowed the show to continue despite the conditions that led to the young man's death.
