Bring Me The Horizon Frontman Oli Sykes Attacked On Stage
Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes was attacked onstage during the band's show in Salt Lake City last night (October 3) while on a headlining U.S. tour. Sykes became angry when bottles were thrown onstage in the direction of the band members and called for those who threw them to either leave or come onstage and address him personally. Some crowd members took him up on his offer and attacked the vocalist. You can watch fan filmed footage of the incident below.
Sykes was unharmed by the incident and returned to the stage a half an hour later to finish the band's set.
He later updated his blog with the following about the incident:
Just to clear any rumours… Nothing happened last night apart from a bunch of soft lads stomped on a lil kids head 5 seconds into our set, so we stopped playing, had a bit of a banter with em telling em to do one, then some fatty gets on stage tries to hit me, in which he completely fails, misses and falls over, and then gets sparked out by someone In our touring party. The “crew” then responded by running around the venue, breaking a very young girls jaw and stamping on her, and injuring a few more of our young fans. Proper hard init.
Not a member in Bmth or any of our touring party got so much as a scratch, oh one did want me to know he fucked my wife though, which hit me hard as you know I’ve been happily married for a long time now :)
Fucking mongs eh? What can u do?
Bring Me The Horizon will play as the support band on Machine Head's U.K. arena tour later this year with Devildriver and Darkest Hour. The band will then begin work on the follow-up to their third album and hope to be in the studio by summer 2012.
