Bring Me the Horizon have cancelled the remainder of their Australian tour following a case of acute laryngitis which frontman Oli Sykes has picked up.
After having been forced to cancel a show in Adelaide earlier this week, the band have now unfortunately had to scrap all remaining shows by means of the following statement: “Live Nation and Unify regret to announce that the remaining dates for Bring Me The Horizon’s tour of Australia will not go ahead due to illness.
Both Melbourne performances, scheduled for tonight and tomorrow night (Thursday September 22 and Friday September 23) will be postponed.
This is due to issues with Oli Sykes’ viral throat infection, which has been diagnosed as acute laryngitis. Medical advice is that he needs immediate rest and cannot perform for the remainder of the tour.
Bring Me The Horizon are fully committed to return to Australia in early 2017 to complete these shows in Melbourne and Adelaide.”
