The death occurred during Friday's (Nov. 30) gig at the Alexandra Palace in London.

Bring Me The Horizon reacted with shock on Saturday night (Dec. 1) to news that a young fan died during their gig at the Alexandra Palace in London on Friday (Nov. 30). "Words cannot express how horrified we are  feeling this evening after hearing about the death of a young man at our show last night," the band tweeted. "Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to his family and loved ones at this terrible time. We will comment further in due course."    

Amid reports that some fans were complaining about insufficient security at the show attended by 10,000 fans, the venue released a statement addressing the incident, writing, "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." The venue did not offer any further comment at press time; the name and age of the person who died had not been revealed at press time.

In a follow-up tweet the venue clarified that security was not a factor in the fan's death. "We would like to clarify that this was a tragic medical incident and unrelated to the extensive security measures in place." The tweet said that there were "over 150 security personnel" on site for the show.

The incident occurred during the second of the band's two sold-out shows at the venue. An official cause of death has not been announced.
