H.I.M. Fan Injured In Balcony Diving During London Gig

An unnamed girl was injured during HIM’s sold out show at the Astoria in London last Friday, when a fan jumped off the balcony into the crowd. Here’s what the band had to say about the unwelcome incident: “During the gig, long time fan of the band Bam Margera, who was watching the band from the side balcony at the Astoria, was encouraged by the crowd to take a controlled leap into the audience. Twenty minutes later, in an unrelated incident, an audience member jumped feet first from the back of the balcony into the pit. The crowd below were obviously watching the stage and were therefore completely unaware of what was happening. This idiotic behaviour resulted in a young lady in the crowd suffering cracked vertebrae which will keep her off work for six weeks. HIM, who were unaware of what was going on until after their gig had finished, would like to say that they are horrified by what happened, and they send all of their love and best wishes for a speedy recovery to the young lady who was hurt. To jump from any balcony is wrong, but with Bam at least the situation was controlled – it’s what he does for a living so nobody got hurt - but the other guy could have caused unthinkable damage. The end result was a fan was hurt, and that is as wrong as wrong can be. This must not happen again.”
