Two die, one injured at an ABBA tribute concert

That headline is 100% accurate.

Two people are dead and a third has non-life-threatening injuries after a person either jumped or fell from the seventh floor of a concert hall in Sweden, landing on the crowd below.

Details are sketchy, but at 7:30 pm local time Tuesday night, about 30 minutes before an ABBA tribute show at a venue in Uppsalla, Sweden (ABBA’s hometown and about 70km north of Stockholm), a man in his 80s fell on a man and a woman in the open foyer below. The man is dead. The woman is in hospital.

Naturally, the concert was canceled.
