An official statement has been made following Sunday's incident where a fan collapsed and died at the Molson Amphitheatre stop of the Vans Warped Tour.

Read it below:

"The Vans Warped Tour family is saddened by the death of a patron attending Toronto's concert at The Flats at Molson Canadian Amphitheater on July 15, 2012. The patron collapsed and was immediately attended to by security and venue medical staff.  After attempts to resuscitate on the grounds, the patron was later pronounced dead after arriving at a local hospital. Out of respect for the family, we have not released the name of the patron. The cause of the death has yet to be determined but the Warped Tour and Molson Amphitheater staff are working closely with the authorities to investigate and determine the nature surrounding the incident and will make further details known as they become available. Our deepest condolences are with the patron's family and friends."
