Rock Kills

Vicarious Music is devastated to report that a Smashing Pumpkins fan was killed at the band’s concert in Vancouver this past Monday.

Exact cause of death has not yet been reported, but the death is so far thought to be a mosh-pit/crowd surfing related incident, according to one witness who said that the young man fell while crowd surfing.

The police have determined there was no foul play involved.

Although vicarious music are advocates of concert going and love nothing more than to see a bunch of fans enjoying a show, dancing, crowd surfing and stage diving, we take this opportunity to ask that you are all careful and thoughtful when taking part-accidents like this do happen.

    “On the 11th (May 1996), The Pumpkins played a show at the Point Theatre, in Dublin Ireland. The tragedy struck. The band was playing a very energetic version of “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” and a 17 year-old teenager, Bernadette O’Brien was crushed and suffered internal injuries. She was camped out near the front of the stage with a hometown friend and two cousins from Dublin, O’Brien was overpowered by a surge of the crowd and crushed by the masses.”

    What is the mortality rate of other bands’ mosh pits?
