Fan Reportedly Dies After Stage Diving at Miss May I Concert


UPDATE: Alternative Press reports that the band has released a statement. The band wrote, "As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday night tragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are awaiting a full report from the New York Police Department. In the meantime, we’d ask that all your thoughts and prayers be with his family. We have been made aware of a webpage that is raising funds to help pay for his funeral costs. We will be making a contribution and we’d strongly urge others to do so-”

Original Story: A fan reportedly passed away after stage diving at Miss May I's Saturday night concert at NYC's Webster Hall. Limited details on the death have been uncovered. 

The metalcore band released a statement on their Facebook page. "Hey everyone, we are aware of the incident that occurred at Webster Hall last night and will be posting a statement shortly. However, we are awaiting further information regarding the situation before we are able to make a full statement." 

A concert attendee responded to Miss May I's Facebook post with the following claim: "A kid stage dove and nobody caught him. He suffered a serious blow to the head and paramedics & doctors weren't able to save him. Club and show venues need to really enforce the 'No stage Diving' rule so stuff like this won't happen. The stage is meant for the band to be on and the band only. R.I.P. Alberto."

Webster Hall told Brooklyn Vegan, "The patron in question did not die while stage diving. The patron collapsed while exiting the venue, as video footage and the police corroborate."

Sinestra Studios reports that Alberto was 21. They're collecting testimonials from friends and fans who knew him.
