Following the band cancelling the Adelaide leg of their Australian tour, the remaining shows have also been cancelled.
Bring Me The Horizon was scheduled to play at Margaret Court Arena both tonight and tomorrow night to conclude their latest tour with Architects & ’68, but due to Oli Sykes‘ throat infection taking a turn for the worse and becoming “acute laryngitis”, the shows will not go ahead.
A statement from the organisers & promoters reads:
“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.
Details will be released shortly with regard to when and how fans will be able to see the band perform.
Ticket holders are encouraged to retain their tickets pending the announcement of new dates, or alternatively may obtain a full refund from the point of purchase.
Further refund enquiries should be directed to ticketek.com.au“.
Well, you heard ’em – hang onto those tickets for when a rescheduled tour gets announced!
Now, would Architects and ’68 be able to carry on the tour by themselves? Maybe…we’ll let you know if that actually comes to be, but with this last minute cancellation, it is doubtful. But Melbourne’s Foxblood are hopeful at least!
Oh man, what a show that would be!
Finally, we sincerely hope that you get well soon, Oli!
