Thousands of fans eagerly waited outside to hear the British rock band, but as soon as they heard music from inside, people began to rush into the arena.
Of the people that died, three were Finneytown students Stephan Preston, Jackie Eckerle and Karen Morrison.
The band was unaware of the tragedy until the concert.
