    A fan died at the Smashing Pumpkins performance on September 24 in Vancouver, Canada. Police are alleging that the death was the result of a "mosh pit or crowd surfing incident."

    The unnamed man was removed from the crowd unconscious and could not be revived. Later in the evening, he was pronounced dead at St. Paul's Hospital. There has been no official statement from the band or its representatives. Police suspect no foul play.
