Steve Aoki cancels show out of respect for dead fans

6/17/2014

DJ Steve Aoki has cancelled a concert in Bilbao, Spain out of respect for the three fans killed at a Halloween show (31Oct12) in Madrid. Five attendees at the Thriller Music Park concert sustained serious injuries at the gig during a crowd crush at the Madrid Arena; two were pronounced dead at the venue and a third died en route to hospital. Two others are still in critical condition. In a statement released to WENN on Thursday (01Nov12), Aoki writes, "I was devastated to hear that three people had died during a crowd rush at one of the exits. The safety of my fans has always been my top priority and had I known that there was any distress putting people in jeopardy within the venue I would have ended my show immediately. "My show in Bilbao, Spain tonight will be cancelled out of respect for those who lost their lives and those who are injured. I would like to express my deepest condolences and heart felt prayers to the families and loved ones during this difficult time."
