You Me At Six stop show to help injured fan
You Me At Six stopped their performance at Slam Dunk Fest a few weekends ago in order to help an injured fan. Frontman Josh Franceschi claims they postponed their set for 30 minutes while the fan was removed from harm's way and received proper medical attention. Despite the delay, however, Slam Dunk allowed the band to finish their set in full, even after running over their scheduled time limit. Read Franceschi's full detailing of the show below.
To everyone who was at Slam Dunk South yesterday... A) Thank you for coming out to watch us we had a great time. B) Thank you for your patience as that young lady was being seen to by paramedics. C) We have never had to leave the stage for 30 minutes, but the safety of people who come to watch our band, as well as your enjoyment level, is paramount to us. Was it somewhat frustrating? Yes. But our egos are far less significant and the show continued as planned after that. D) Thank you to the fans in that area of the crowd for alerting me to the situation, to the security and paramedics for acting swiftly, and to Slam Dunk for letting us run over so we could complete our set. E) Glad to say the young lady has completely recovered. This photo is what it's all about for me. Thank you @giloscope for capturing it.
