The group, which lists its base as Brixton, south London, performed in Mr Aunion's native Spain under the name Compañíadehecho. I'm sorry to tell you that he died today.

Specialist in aerial dance Pedro Aunión Monroy, was suspended in a cage during the Mad Cool festival in Madrid, on Friday night. He said he would never return to Mad Cool or Green Day.

The tragedy happened moments before headliners Green Day were due to come on stage - but the band made a decision to play on after a 25-minute delay.

"Green Day" reportedly didn't know what had happened until after they left the stage.

However, the festival was also criticised for not informing the band.

In a statement released Saturday, the festival said it "regrets the awful accident" and that the decision to continue with Green Day's set was made for "security reasons".

"For security reasons, the festival chose to continue with the event". We send our most honest condolences to all his family.

Mad Cool organizers say they'll continue the festival over the weekend but will "render a heartfelt tribute to the artist" on Saturday.

Green Day were initially criticized for performing shortly after the acrobat's death, but the band later issued a statement saying they were unaware he had died until they came off stage. "A very courageous artist named Pedro lost his life tonight in a tragic accident". Our thoughts go out to those affected.

The performer, identified as Pedro Aunion Monroy, was a choreographer and experienced dancer.

Pedro trained at the Madrid Royal Conservatory and worked as a senior choreographer on a Spanish TV reality show called CIRCUS. "The whole place was talking and posting about it on Facebook and Twitter?". "I love you Pedro, your happiness, your strength, your wisdom, keep flying over us".
