Warped Tour Reps Issue Statement on Death of Teenage Audience Member
As we recently reported, a 19-year-old female concertgoer tragically died on July 15 during the Toronto, Canada, stop of the Vans Warped Tour. The unidentified music fan was reportedly found unconscious in the early afternoon and died from as-yet-unknown causes. In response to the fan's passing, the Vans Warped Tour have released an official statement about the incident.
Deathcore band Chelsea Grin were playing at the time the deceased fan fell unconscious, offering their condolences via Twitter after they learned of the news. "Our hearts go out to the person who died today. We still don't know everything that happened but it's no time for jokes on our page."
Two days having passed since the death of the female Warped Tour attendee, representatives of the annual summer tour addressed the situation and offered their condolences.
The Vans Warped Tour family is saddened by the death of a patron attending Toronto’s concert at The Flats at Molson Canadian Amphitheater on July 15, 2012. The patron collapsed and was immediately attended to by security and venue medical staff. After attempts to resuscitate on the grounds, the patron was later pronounced dead after arriving at a local hospital. Out of respect for the family, we have not released the name of the patron.
The cause of the death has yet to be determined but the Warped Tour and Molson Amphitheater staff are working closely with the authorities to investigate and determine the nature surrounding the incident and will make further details known as they become available. Our deepest condolences are with the patron’s family and friends.
