After speculation and reports online, the tragic news has now been confirmed that a fan died during Bring Me The Horizon‘s recent show at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 30th 2018.

The show was the band’s second of two sold-out shows at the 10,000-capacity venue, and the final date of their First Love Tour in promotion of their forthcoming sixth album, ‘amo’.

According to eyewitness reports, the incident is believed to have occurred in a mosh pit during the first half of Bring Me The Horizon‘s set, where an individual identified as “Ali” was carried out by security and paramedics, and was unsuccessfully resuscitated.

SHVPES vocalist Griffin Dickinson initially commented on what happened in now deleted tweets which read as follows (as reported by All Things Loud).

“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.

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 [right now].”

Following the news, Bring Me The Horizon have now tweeted about the incident, in which they say that they are “horrified” over what has happened, and that their “hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones at this terrible time.”

“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.”

Staff at the venue have also tweeted and confirmed that a “medical incident” occurred during the show.

“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.”

According to this Twitter thread, there are reports of further injuries and the death of a second fan, though these are yet to be verified.

We here at DEAD PRESS! offer our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family, friends, and loved ones of those affected by these tragic incidents at this incredibly difficult time.
