Death From Above 1979’s Sebastien Grainger performed an brief impromptu duet with a woman signing their show at Lollapalooza in Chicago on Saturday (August 6).

All main stage gigs at the annual festival have people translating the songs into sign language, but during 'Romantic Rights', the reformed duo's drummer Grainger went down to the platform on which the female signer was performing the song and sang to her whilst she signed along with him, reports Spinner. After the song he said:

You looked lonely over there. If we had another drummer I'd come back, but I can't… I'm staying at the Hard Rock, so look me up. I got a whole lotta signs, if you know what I'm saying, and none of them say 'Stop'.


Watch the performance below:



As previously reported, A 25 year-old woman died in an accident whilst returning home from Lollapalooza in Chicago on the same day.

Jacqueline Michon was crushed by a truck after losing her footing on her bicycle and falling under the truck’s rear axle. After the bands had finished, Michon was cycling to her apartment, whilst the five friends who were staying with her took the train, reports Billboard.com. Michon was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges have been filed against the truck driver.
