Tragedy hit the Toronto stop of the Warped Tour as a 19-year old Taylor Nesseth died at the Molson Amphitheatre this past Sunday. Toronto newspaper The Toronto Star reported that the woman collapsed during the show, with promoters moving attendees into a covered venue. Given that, it is speculated that the 30Â°C/86F plus temperatures were involved in her collapse.
Paramedics arrived after being called, but despite being transported to Toronto Western in the highest priority she was pronounced dead at the hospital. This summer has proven to be one of the deadliest in many years, with deaths across the United States at 36 just 10 days after the heat wave began at the beginning of July.
A number of Warped Tour performed tweeted condolences to the young woman, with Hayley Williams of Paramore saying: "My heart and prayers go out to family and friends of the young girl, Taylor, who passed away at Warped Tour today. Rest in peace." Warped Tour organizes have been promising an official statement and account since yesterday but have not said or explained anything yet.
