Category:Musicians who died on stage

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a category for musicians who died on stage, or very shortly thereafter. To be listed in this category, the performer's death should be a result of injuries or acute illness that happened during (though not necessarily as a result of) the performance.

In other words, if a performer had a heart attack on stage, collapsed, and was taken off stage, dying shortly thereafter, then they should be in this category. However, if a performer died off stage shortly after performing, but showed no evidence of illness or injury during the performance, they probably shouldn't be listed. Also exempted are people such as Tatiana Nikolayeva, whose death occurred nine days after she became ill while performing.
