AceShowbiz - Country star Brantley Gilbert canceled a show in Pennsylvania at the weekend to honor a crew member who died unexpectedly.
Alan Ditch, who worked with the star for almost a decade, collapsed at the KeyBank Pavilion in Pittsburgh on Saturday after suffering 'a cardiac event,' according to reports. The 49 year old was pronounced dead hours later.
Gilbert and his band were so upset by the tragedy, they felt they had to pull the plug on the show that evening.
Venue bosses alerted fans via Twitter, writing: "Brantley Gilbert's touring crew lost a key member today unexpectedly and out of respect for the family, they are postponing the show tonight in Pittsburgh."
Gilbert took to social media on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 to share a memorial video, titled "In Loving Memory of Alan Ditch". The footage featured clips and photographs of the technician on the road with the singer.
