crys Live suicide at a concert

I am not sure of the validity of this. I read it at another music site I post at, but I guess it has been talked about all over the world:

Industrial rock band HELL ON EARTH will feature a "live suicide" at their State Theatre performance in St. Petersburg, Florida on Saturday, October 4. A Euthanasia Society member will carry out the suicide to raise awareness for dying with dignity. The Euthanasia member, who suffers from a terminal illness, is using the event as a platform to help make backstreet suicides a thing of the past.

Though his identity is being withheld until the day of the event, he did have this to say, "I thank the Lord that HELL ON EARTH is giving me this opportunity to end my suffering. I just want to say as my last will and testament that this is my God-given choice to end my life. I'd prefer to have a physician-assisted suicide but until the laws are changed, those who are in pain like me will either have to continue to suffer or do it themselves."

The event, "The Hell On Earth Haunted Tour", is part of a national tour the band is on to support their new album, "All Things Disturbingly Sassy".





I am not sure if dying with dignity could be found by killing yourself at a HELL ON EARTH concert.

This is disturbing. And its NOT in that "disturbing but I wanna see it anyway" kind of fashion. This angers me maximum. Maximum anger.

No one should ever make light or glorify that act. Its wrong, and when are people going to understand THAT!!!

Very wrong. And sick to make light of.

If it's against Florida law, which he makes it sound like it is, and they are announcing it beforehand, me-thinks this is bullshit as it would be stopped by police before the band even unloaded their first amp from their shitty van.

what is a backstreet suicide and how is it bad? i don't get this bit at all. it is a selfish act to be doing this infront of people. take your own life on your own terms in your own privacy, not infront of other's for publicity sakes.
