Bring Me the Horizon fan dies during gig at London's Alexandra Palace

Alternative metal band Bring Me The Horizon have expressed their “horror” after “hearing about the death of a young man at our show last night.”

BMTH played at London’s Alexandra Palace on Friday night, the venue posting on Twitter the next day: “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.”

The Independent has contacted Alexandra Palace for further detail on the incident.

“Words cannot express how horrified we are feeling this evening after hearing about the death of a young man at our show last night,” the band tweeted. “Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones at this terrible time. We will comment further in due course.”

It is not yet known how the fan died, but eyewitness reports claim a man named “Ali” was carried out of the crowd at the 10,000-capacity venue by security.

In since-deleted tweets, Griffin Dickinson - frontman of SHVPES and son of Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson - wrote (via AllThingsLoud): “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.”
