We were stunned to learn that a fan sadly passed away at Bring Me The Horizon show last night at the massive Alexandra Palace in London, UK.
While details were initially scare, the fan was identified as Ali Mills and it's reported that he died of a heart attack. The venue has acknowledged the "medical incident" in a tweet yesterday:
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.

Following the above statement, we would like to clarify that this was a tragic medical incident and unrelated to the extensive security measures in place. However, we feel we must address inaccurate information. There were over 150 security personnel on site for the concert.
