Fan Dies At BRING ME THE HORIZON Concert In London

A fan died during BRING ME THE HORIZON's concert at Alexandra Palace in London Friday night (November 30).

The band has issued the following statement regarding the mater: "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."

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. I feel like British 'awkwardness' gets in the way of helping people. 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."

Alexandra Palace released a statement on Twitter confirming a "medical incident" took place at the venue.

"A medical incident occurred at last night's BRING ME THE HORIZON concert," the statement read. "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."

No further information regarding the incident is available at this time.
