Person Dies At Dead & Company Concert At Citi Field

Dead & Company played a show at Citi Field in New York City on Friday. Sadly, The New York Post reported that a man fell at the show and was taken to a nearby hospital where he died.

According to The Post, a man in his 40s fell 30 to 50 feet from a balcony while reportedly attempting to do a flip. The man was taken to New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The New York Daily News, citing a police source, reported that “first responders were called to the scene at about 9:05 p.m.”

“[The man] attempted a body flip, fell, and landed on the balcony below,” a police source told The New York Daily News.

Friday’s Dead & Company concert was the third show of the band’s Summer Tour 2021. The group is scheduled to perform again tonight at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
