The venue have stated that he collapsed after exiting the show, succumbing to his apparent injuries. Here’s what the group had to say today about the matter:
“As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday night tragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are awaiting a full report from the New York Police Department. In the meantime, we’d ask that all your thoughts and prayers be with his family. We have been made aware of a webpage that is raising funds to help pay for his funeral costs. We will be making a contribution and we’d strongly urge others to do so- http://www.gofundme.com/8vjoq.”
