NOFX have paid tribute to a fan who died after sustaining a head injury at their concert in Copenhagen last week (June 15).

Samuel Pollas, 20, hit his head on the ground during the show at the Den Gra Hal venue, and complained of feeling nauseated and dizzy after the gig had ended. He later died in his sleep.

As Loudwire reports, the band posted a tribute to Pollas on their Facebook page. It read: “This is Samuel. He was 20. He hit his head on the ground at our show in Copenhagen. He was nauseated and dizzy, but decided to go home and sleep. He never woke up. Our hearts go out to his mother and friends.”


The band also posted a message from Pollas’ mother, giving advice to other fans. “If you’re drunk and hit your head, do not go to bed without getting it checked,” she wrote. “Let none of your friends walk home alone after a fall or blow to the head. Take care of yourselves and each other.”

NOFX released their latest album ‘Self Entitled’ in 2012. The band are currently finishing up a European tour before heading to Canada for the Amnesia Rockfest.
