Bring Me The Horizon have released a statement regarding the reported death of a fan during their London show.

“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.”

ORIGINAL STORY: DEC. 1, 4:44 P.M. EST

Bring Me The Horizon performed at Alexandra Palace in London last night, Nov 30, where a fan has reportedly died.

In a couple since-deleted tweets, SHVPES vocalist Griffin 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 later went on to add, “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” did occur:

“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.”

Tweets from those at the scene have begun to surface, confirming the incident.

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

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
