Original Story:
Unconfirmed reports are coming in that a fan died while attending Bring Me The Horizon‘s show last night, November 30th, at the Alexandra Palace in London, England. One apparent friend of the man in question identified him as ‘Ali‘ via social media, saying in a since-deleted tweet:

“Still in state of shock.
Thank you to those who got him out, thank you to the medics who tried to save him.
Ali was a good friend of mine. I was supposed to be with him & friends at BMTH show but something came up. Absolutely gutted. Rest easy Ali. Love & miss you.”

Meanwhile, SHVPES vocalist Griffin Dickinson had the following to say in a pair of since-deleted tweets:

“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. Don’t leave it up for someone else. If someone looks unwell, CHECK on them… 1/2”

“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.”

A number of other fans in attendance have also commented on the matter:

Thus far no official word has come down on the matter.
