Ghost cancels show after man dies during their set

Thursday, May 31, 2018 9:49 PM PT


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.

Whereas I can 150% empathize with a fan collapsing or even passing mid show... The bottom line is that 2499 others paid for the show including myself.. I talked to fans that flew in or drove 850-1000 miles for this show due to its location.
Bottom line is that Tobias called the show, Tobias do the right thing and reimburse the fans for your decision as the show ALWAYS must go on. If not, I see this as a stunt due to lack of interest on the poor reception of Prequelle.

Probably because he realized he was at a Ghost show and needed an easy exit

They are asking those that believe in prayer to do so, not that they necessarily believe in prayer themselves. Asshat.

Hey guy, you're the asshat. This is Lambgoat. Not PrayerGoat. Keep your prayer out of my comment section, Hatass.

Keep prayer out of metal. We should be happy someone died. It's what Lord Satan would want. Metal is for death. Death is for metal. Death Metal is life..... therefore, Cannibal Corpse are the evangelists of our cause. They love the devil. The devil loves them. Therefore, the devil is in the details. Death metal is about details.

^ old enough to express a valid point and not be ridiculed by a toddler, who was forced to stay inside from recess for not coloring inside the lines of their homework.
