Over the weekend it was reported that a fan had died at Bring Me The Horizon’s concert in Alexandra Palace, London on 30th November 2018.

The unnamed male had reportedly been carried away by medics with attempts to resuscitate. A London Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed that “the patient died at the scene.” The cause of death is still unknown.

The tragedy occured at the final UK date of their ‘First Love’ world tour in Alexandra Palace for the second time in that week. Both the band and the venue have made statements on the situation.

Bring Me The Horizon shared their condolences for the loss of a loved fan in a statement posted across their social media “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.”

Alexandra Palace also posted a statement that reads “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.”

Fans who attended the event or previous dates shared their deepest condolences for the tragic loss of a fan and friend:

It’s thought from Bring Me’s original statement that there may be a possible follow up statement, but if we can learn anything from this, be it this: Concert are meant to be fun, and people have fun in lots of different ways. But please, if you see someone who is injured or hurt then it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes to take them to a security guard or medical tent. Help each other.
