Ghost cancels show after man dies during their set

Having played roughly half of their set, Ghost canceled the remainder of their show tonight (May 31) at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI after a man reportedly died. Witnesses claim that a man passed out and was eventually attended to by EMTs. Although CPR was performed for a substantial amount of time, personnel were unable to revive him. The Milwaukee Medical Examiner said the man was taken to Columbia St. Mary's hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name has not yet been released. The band has issued the following statement:
"Tonight, in Milwaukee there was a medical emergency with one of our fans. We decided not to continue out of respect to him and his family. Ghost and all who work with us ask that you please send the family your thoughts, prayers and respect their privacy during this time."
Tonight's tragedy cast a pall over the release of the band's brand new album, Prequelle, which is available now.
