Three More Swedish House Mafia Concert Stabbings
Swedish House Mafia announced their farewell tour and have completed their final performance in the United Kingdom and it was a string of performances filled with absolute craziness!
Earlier in the week, we heard that nine people had been stabbed and someone died from an overdose in the crowd but now that tally has risen – three more concertgoers were stabbed at their concert in Milton Keynes, England which brings the grand total to 12 stabbings in a week! What is happening?
Police say that the victims were two 23-year-old men and one 24-year-old man and that one suspect was responsible for all three stabbings! Wow! Three other people were arrested on the suspicion that they were carrying drugs with the intent to distribute them among the crowd.
The first string of attacks occurred on July 7th at a show in Dublin, prompting the band to issue the following statement on their Facebook page:
"We played a festival in Ireland at the weekend and reports of incidents are coming to us," the statement read. "We didn't see anything but have asked for all the info and are respectful of the promoter's need to wait and give us all the clear facts. When we know more we will liaise with the festival promoter directly on what we can do to help but for now we have to respect their request to us that we remain quiet and respectful of their event safety processes. The festival itself was amazing and we had no idea this had happened and neither did the other numerous artists who played. Once we know all the facts we will deal with it in the best way we can."
With no more shows planned, let’s hope this is the last of the stabbings associated with the band.
