On May 31st, tragedy struck in Milwaukee, WI at Ghost’s sold-out performance at the Riverside Theater when Jeffrey Fortune passed out during intermission and died later that evening at the hospital. The group instantly paid their respects by cutting off the rest of the concert in honor of their fallen fan.
Since then, a GoFundMe account was launched to help Fortune’s family and just as promised, Ghost returned to the Riverside Theater last night (31st) for a special performance. A special t-shirt was made available, which featured Cardinal Copia and Jeffrey Fortune dressed as the famous Halloween character, Michael Myers. All proceeds from the t-shirt went to Fortune’s family.
The band’s leader, Cardinal Copia/Tobias Forge took a few moments to address the reason behind their return while paying a tribute to the late Fortune.
