BMTH respond to concert death

2018-12-02 by Nat S. | 98 Comments
Bring Me The Horizon have commented after the death of a fan at a recent concert.

The incident occurred at their gig at London's Alexandra Palace on Friday; ambulances were called at 9:48pm but the fan was pronounced dead at the scene.

Yesterday BMTH tweeted: '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.' They also said they would comment further in due course.

The cause of death is unknown, although fans replying to the band's Twitter account indicate that it may have been a result of violence incurred while in the pit ("I know pits are fun but it breaks my heart that people are risking their lives by trying to have fun. I was at the gig in Birmingham and people were coming out with bloody noses and visibly broken bones. This is not what music is about").

Now that I think about it for some reason as a kid I thought that people always die in metal (good or bad) concerts, like, it was a very common thing and no one would be surprised if 100 people die in a concert with thousands... Maybe that's why I was never too interested in concerts.

Hey, I'm not saying that's what happens (well, maybe it does? I don't know, I haven't confirmed if ¡t happens or not), I'm just saying that as a kid I thought it was common for people to die in concerts. Best part is that I'm not very sure why I used to believe that.

I sincerely doubt getting stampeded upon by a bunch of twats could ever be considered a good way to go. it was most likely a painful and terrifying death.

in all seriousness - this is a huge problem at shows with a lot of young uns/more popular metal acts.

The respect isn't there when people pit/mosh whatever. That ethos of getting it all out but also safety and respect for all those involved gets shorthanded into - fuck everything up. I reckon that's one of the reasons this is way more likely to happen at BMTH or a similar band than at a smaller (but maybe even more packed out and potentially dangerous )show

Yeah, this sucks big time. From what I heard, the venue didn't hire enough security to account for the venue's capacity. Apparently there was another person who died at the show, but I'm not 100% sure if that's true as the only confirmation I've had is via fans on Twitter.

People definitely need to show more courtesy to others at shows rather than trying to give people serious injuries. I went to a Culture Abuse gig in London in October (mainly as Gouge Away were supporting), and three songs into their set, a girl at the front got kneed in the back of the neck by a stage diver and got knocked out instantly. The band stopped playing instantly and after the paramedics arrived to take the girl away (about half an hour before curfew), the band announced that they wouldn't be playing after that. While it was accidental, it definitely makes you think about this stuff in relation to fan safety. I'm lucky in that the few times I've been knocked over at shows, those around me have picked me up instantly.

go to any show in the UK, and you'll know americans don't know the first thing about moshing.

this sucks big time, also the second time this band has had to address something awful happening at their shows. apparently the kid died of something drug related, people at the show are likely exaggerating what went on

Imagine if the band was called Ping me the Horizon

Like, remember ping? The internet thing? I'm not sure I remember what it meant but your internet had ping.

So this band is like a combination of their original band name concept, then the concept of ping, which if course rhymes with ping. Ping me the Horizon.
