A 49-year-old John Fogerty fan getting set to watch his performance died just minutes before the voice behind classic hits as ‘Who’ll Stop The Rain’ and ‘Travelin’ Band’ was due to take to the stage.

The unnamed woman was attending the Byron Bay Bluesfest — where she was a regular according to festival venue manager Brendan Meek — and suffered a cardiac arrest. Although paramedics rushed to resuscitate the victim, they were not successful in doing so.

Fogerty’s two-hour show went ahead, although the 67-year-old rocker took the stage approximately 20 minutes later than scheduled due to this unfortunate incident. Meek reported that the loss “has really hit everybody hard,” although he finds some solace in the fact that “she was at a place she loved. She came to Bluesfest every year.”
