Somebody Died At A LINKIN PARK Show Last Night

Stories like this are never fun. Not so metal act, Linkin Park were playing Cape Town Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa yesterday at a festival, when an advertising tower (pictured) fell ontop of a slew of concert goers. Most got out of there with a few injuries, but one female fan lost her life.

The band has released the following statement:

“Following our performance tonight at Cape Town Stadium, we were advised that several people were injured as a result of the collapse of an advertising tower erected by Lucozade in the parking area outside the venue.

We wish to express our deep sadness and concern for those injured and our heartfelt condolences to the family of the fan who died as a result of her injuries.

Though we have had no relationship with the sponsor or the entity responsible for erecting the structure, we take the safety of our fans very seriously and our thoughts are with all of those who were affected by this tragedy.”

When did going to shows become so dangerous?! Between stabbings, riots and this, maybe it's time to wear helmets and protective gear when hitting a concert?
