1 Dead, Dozens Hurt as Roof Collapses During Metal Concert



At least one person was killed and dozens more were injured when the roof of the Apollo Theater in Belvidere, Illinois, collapsed during storms on Friday night.

A sold-out crowd of 260 people was inside the venue to hear bands Morbid Angel, Revocation, and Skeletal Remains when severe weather hit.

Theresa Best told WLS-TV that she was on her way to the show when disaster struck and she was trying to reach friends who got there before her.

“The metal community is so nice, and my heart just aches for anybody who did lose their life. I just hope all my friends are OK,” she said.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said he was “closely monitoring” the situation. “I’ve been in touch with officials for updates and to direct any available resources we can,” he tweeted.
