In a heart-wrenching incident, an elderly woman, aged in her 70s, tragically lost her life after a severe fall during a Robbie Williams concert at Allianz Stadium, Sydney. The concert, held on November 16th, turned somber when the fan fell down six rows of seats, suffering critical head injuries.
Despite immediate medical attention and being rushed to St. Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition, the woman sadly passed away on November 21st. This unfortunate event occurred on the first night of Robbie Williams' XXV Australian Tour, marking his return to Australia since 2018.
The British singer, known for his vibrant performances and as a former member of the 90s pop band Take That, has yet to make a statement regarding the incident. According to reports, the woman was attempting to navigate the seating area by climbing over chairs instead of using the stairs.
The incident took place at the conclusion of the concert, a time when thousands of fans were exiting the venue. The spokesperson for Allianz Stadium detailed the sequence of events, expressing deep sorrow over the incident and extending thoughts and wishes to the family of the patron.
