"Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones at this terrible time"

Bring Me The Horizon have responded to reports that a fan died at their Alexandra Palace show, saying they were “horrified” at the news.

The Sheffield band were playing the second of their two sold-out shows on November 30, when the the London Ambulance Service were called to the north London venue. The young man was pronounced dead at the scene. An official cause of death remains unknown.

BMTH posted a short statement to social media, the tweet read: “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.”

Alexandra Palace also posted a statement on Twitter about a “medical incident” at the venue and sent their condolences to the young man’s family.

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.

The band and many fans attending the show were unaware of the incident at the time. Initial reports wrongly claimed that two people had died in the mosh pit while unconfirmed reports claim that the young man died of a heart attack.

One fan wrote: “I just don’t understand how were we in the same room at the same time and so many people, my friends and I included, didn’t know what was happening. There was a dying person and 50% of us didn’t even notice.”

However, other people attending the gig pointed towards a lack of adequate security on the night.

It was so mad last night! The entire place was just so rough. The venue need to sort out their security! 10 main people for 10k people!

thank you for addressing this. we as a community need to work together to improve safety at concerts, so people don't get seriously hurt. what happened at that show was a horrible mistake the venue made

exactly my point. 9 security guards is absolutely absurd. ally pally should have had at LEAST 200 guards (and in various places, too…the 9 were only at barricade). not saying it would have saved ali's life, that can't be determined, but adequate security was not provided.

Fans who had been in the mosh pit also paid tribute to the friendly nature of the crowd.

Even with this terrible tragedy that has happened, I will say that the pits at these shows wasn’t extremely violent or anything like that, I was at both London shows and I found everyone to be respectful and everyone would pick people up if they went down.

I was in this pit, everybody was helping each other out as they always do but there were people getting trampled (me included) and there were big pile ups. It’s unavoidable I guess.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 9.48pm on Friday (November 30) to reports of a person unwell at Alexandra Palace in north London.

“We sent an ambulance crew, a paramedic in a fast response car, an advanced paramedic and our hazardous area response team to the scene. Our first medic arrived in less than three minutes.

“Sadly the patient died at the scene.”
