Miss May I said they would be making a statement following the death of fan Alberto Scott at Saturday’s show once they learned all the details. It was good for them to wait since initial reports erroneously claimed Scott died after stage diving, though it’s still not clear whether or not that was part of it. Here’s the post from the band’s Facebook:
As many of you will have heard, Alberto Scott, a Miss May I fan in attendance at our Webster Hall show on Saturday night tragically died. We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. We are awaiting a full report from the New York Police Department. In the meantime, we’d ask that all your thoughts and prayers be with his family. We have been made aware of a webpage that is raising funds to help pay for his funeral costs. We will be making a contribution and we’d strongly urge others to do so- http://www.gofundme.com/8vjoqc
Sounds like the band have the right idea in addressing this tragedy. We’ll be sure to update when those full reports are released.
