Another crew member is in critical condition.

A crew member died after Avenged Sevenfold's show in Stuttgart, Germany.

According to a statement on the band's website, a 26 year old stagehand fell from the rafters while breaking down the band's stage.

"He fell a very far distance onto a 19 year old man on the local crew," the band wrote. "Tragically, the 19 year old died from his injuries. The other man is now in critical condition at the hospital."

"This is beyond heartbreaking to everyone in the band and on our crew. We all send our thoughts and prayers to the man in the hospital, both families involved, all of the local Live Nation crew and everyone else whose lives have been affected by this terrible accident."

"We love our crew so much as well as the many local staff who are essential to our show every night wherever we are around the world. This is such a stark reminder of how quickly an accident can happen and lives shattered in the process. When we hear more we will update you."

Our thoughts are with everyone involved.
