Stations: the following copy contains the word "Hell"

(Tampa, Florida-AP) -- A shock rock band leader is promising a live suicide during a Webcast concert tonight, against the advice of his lawyer and in defiance of a city ban and threats of criminal charges.

The band's Web site says that the concert and suicide will take place in an undisclosed location in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

"Hell on Earth" leader Billy Tourtelot first announced last month he would host the suicide of a terminally ill fan.

The band intends to broadcast the event on its Web page and asks its fans to visit the site for the 7:30 p-m performance.

The band's attorney says says he has not been told where the concert will be held.
