A fan has died after falling from the catwalk at a Memorial Day weekend Chevelle concert.

The Chicago Tribune reports Kyle Kirchhoff, a 24 year old football coach and Hanover Park resident, was killed when he fell from the catwalk at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom. He was impaled when he landed on 2 pieces of 'protruding metal' Friday night. The fall occurred just before 10:30 as Chevelle was performing on stage. After learning of a fan injury, Chevelle stopped the show.  When the severity of the incident was realized, the rest of the show was cancelled.

Police are investigating, Kirchhoff was with two friends and managed to wander through an open door and out onto the catwalk where they were watching the show. After a few minutes the friends noticed he was not with them. After a quick search they found Kirchhoff, he had fallen approximately 8 feet onto two metal rods, according to a source.

Kirchhoff was a D-Line coach for the College of DuPage, and was known as a mentor to younger players at the Chicago area community college.

Chevelle released a statement via their Facebook page.

To our fans, as you may or may not have heard, an extremely unfortunate event occurred at our show in Chicago Friday night.

We were asked by police to stop our set so that the authorities could tend to an injured fan. Once the severity of the accident was determined the authorities cleared out the venue to give them time to investigate. We want to thank our Chicago fans for their respect of the authorities and for understanding that these decisions made by the authorities were out of our control. We love our fans in Chicago and while there was no question that the show would be cut short in light of this tragic event, we will be sure to play for you all again as soon as possible.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Chevelle fan Kyle Kirchhoff and at this time we ask that you all keep Kyle and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

The recent Chevelle/Used concert in Poughkeepsie was cancelled, but both bands are attempting to get back into the market soon.
