Oli Sykes Ruptures Vocal Cord, Bring Me the Horizon Cancel Final Two Dates of Tour


UPDATE, 5:00pm EST: Bring Me the Horizon have announced that the cause of the cancelations is vocalist Oli Sykes’ ruptured vocal cord. The band posted:

“I’m gutted to announce we have to cancel the remainder of our American tour. I’ve ruptured my right vocal chord, and I’ve been told if I don’t rest it immediately I’m in serious danger of doing permanent damage. I’ve been trying my best to fulfill our commitments as I really hate letting you guys down, not to mention these shows have been literally the most fun ever — but at this point me singing would be the equivalent of a footballer running on a broken leg.. once again I’m so sorry, I hope you all understand.”

Original Post:

Bring Me the Horizon have canceled the final two dates of their current North American tour, tonight (February 15) in Phoenix and tomorrow night in Las Vegas.

The band has not revealed a reason for the cancelations other than the usual “unforeseen circumstances,” although Loudwire notes that bassist Matt Kean was absent from the band’s TV performance yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Fever 333 guitarist Stephen Harrison filled in.

Bring Me the Horizon’s Twitter used the word “canceled” while a post from Fever 333 said the shows were “postponed,” the latter of which typically means there are plans to reschedule. No such plans have been announced yet, with refunds being offered at point purchase.

We’ll update this post as soon as we learn the cause of the cancelation.
