In a couple of since-deleted tweets, SHVPES vocalist Griffin Dickinson — son of IRON MAIDEN‘s Bruce Dickinson — wrote: “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.”
Griffin added: “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 rn.”
Alexandra Palace released a statement on Twitter confirming a “medical incident” took place at the venue.
“A medical incident occurred at last night’s BRING ME THE HORIZON concert,” the statement read. “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.”
No further information regarding the incident is available at this time.

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the fact that someone died during Bring Me The Horizon last night at Alexandra Palace. I sat in the medical room with my friend and looked outside to see a literal dead body being wheeled in to ambulance, something which 1. has traumatised me
