Ghost Fan Dies After Collapsing Mid-Show

Ghost cut their show short last night (May 31) after a fan in the audience collapsed.  Tragically, the fan passed away later yesterday evening.

Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the unnamed fan collapsed during the show around 9:15 PM.  Members of the audience signaled for security. CPR was administered on the fan, and at 9:45 PM, security announced the show was canceled.  The fan was taken to Columbia St. Mary’s hospital where he sadly died due to natural causes according to the Milwaukee Medical Examiner. An autopsy is not planned.

The following messages were released by Ghost last night after the show and this morning upon learning the unnamed fan had passed away:
