Tributes as woman dies at concert
A POPULAR band has paid tribute to a woman who collapsed and died at one of their performances in Glasgow.
The four-piece tribute group the Jerseytones were at the Marriott Hotel on Saturday night when a member of the audience became ill.
The Glasgow-based band tweeted: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of May McIntyre who very sadly passed away while attending our performance.
“Even though paramedics attended the scene they couldn’t save her. We would like to thank everyone who attended to help.”
A woman who was in the audience at the concert said the woman, who was in her 60s, became ill while the band was having a break and not onstage.
She added: “They should have come back for the second half of their performance but they decided not to. What happened to the woman was really tragic.”
A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesperson said they received a call just before midnight on Saturday to attend the incident and the woman was taken to the Royal Infirmary.
