GloRilla Show Stampede: Third Person Dies After US Rap Concert Crush After NYC Concert | Ent & Arts News

A third person died after being injured in a stampede as fans stood up to leave a rap concert in upstate New York over the weekend.

The crush happened after a performance by Memphis rappers GloRilla and Finesse2tymes at the Rochester Main Street Armory.

Police said the surge, which occurred shortly after 11pm on Sunday, may have been triggered by unfounded fears of gunfire.

On Monday, authorities confirmed that two women, Rhondesia Belton, 33, of Buffalo, and Brandy Miller, 35, of Rochester, died after they were caught in the crush as people made their way to the exits.

Now a third woman, Aisha Stephens, 35, of Syracuse, who was hospitalized after the crash, has also died.

Six other people were injured.

After the first two deaths were confirmed, rapper GloRilla – real name Gloria Hallelujah Woods – tweeted: “I am devastated and heartbroken at the tragic deaths that occurred after Sunday’s show. My fans mean a lot to me by praying for their families and for a speedy recovery of all those affected”.

The venue has had its entertainment license revoked while criminal and regulatory investigations are ongoing, said Patrick Beath, the city’s deputy corporation counsel.

In addition to a police investigation, he said fire and health and safety authorities are inspecting the building and reviewing photos and video from the concert to determine if there have been any violations.

The venue’s main arena has a capacity of about 5,000, city officials said.

Sky News contacted the headquarters for comment.
