The Rock and Roll Wall of Shame

You won’t find the following 239 names etched on glass panels at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, USA. They’re the people—maybe a friend, relative, son or daughter—that the rock concert industry wants us to forget.

Everyone listed below, according to our research, is a victim of lax or improper concert crowd management. In other words, these are deaths that need not have occurred.

This list will continue to grow until the rock concert industry and its members (promoters, venue operators, security firms, performers, agents, insurance companies, etc.) take unified action to prevent such tragedies.

The Wall of Shame includes only those safety-related deaths from 1990 to the present currently listed in Crowd Management Strategies' Crowdsafe® Database. It does not include all concert deaths (or the hundreds of thousands of fans who have suffered various types of injuries during this same period).
