Man Dies After Korn Show

A man died August 1st due to injuries sustained during a fight at a Korn concert at the HiFi Buys Amphitheatre in Atlanta July 30th.

Andy Richardson apparently got into a fight with two men in the mosh pit. Police say they have only a vague description of the two men who attacked Richardson, who was originally put on life support and considered brain dead. His mother, Gloria Richardson, is asking for the men to turn themselves in.

“And I’m angry. I’m very angry,” Richardson told Atlanta’s WSB-TV. “Why were the police not there to stop them?”

A friend of Andy Richardson said one man hit Richardson in the head with his fist, knocking him head-first onto the concrete. HiFi Buys is a House of Blues Entertainment-owned venue.

“It’s an unfortunate accident and our thoughts are with the family,” HoB Entertainment spokesman Jack Gannon told Pollstar. “We are fully cooperating with the Atlanta police in the investigation and apprehension of the potential suspects.”
