Man dies at Smashing Pumpkins gig

‘A man has died after being found unconscious at a concert by rock group Smashing Pumpkins in Vancouver, Canada.

Security staff saw two people carrying the man out of the crowd at the Pacific National Exhibition Forum, shortly after the band came on stage on Monday.

The fan, who was 20, was given first aid and was taken to St Paul’s Hospital in the city, but was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

It was an “extremely tragic” event, a spokesman for the venue said.

“A 20-year-old came to enjoy an evening of music but didn’t go home that night,” he added.

Tests from a post-mortem examination are awaited before any conclusions are drawn as to how or why the victim died.’
