Concerts are supposed to be a safe place where we can enjoy our favorite music. However, over the years there have been too many cases of tragedies at concerts. Whether it's a riot, fire, or terrorist attack, sometimes a gig is interrupted and chaos ensues.
A recent tragedy occurred on the first stop of The Weeknd's 'After Hours til Dawn' tour. Police have confirmed that a 32-year-old man died after falling off an escalator rail at the July 14 show in Philadelphia. The concert took place in a massive football stadium called Lincoln Financial Field. The man was reportedly sitting on the rail and slipped, falling 40 feet (12 meters) to the ground where he suffered severe head trauma. He was rushed to hospital but sadly passed away that night. Police say that the fall appears to have been accidental. The Weeknd has not yet commented on the tragic event.
