Due to unfortunate circumstances, Bring Me The Horizon's return show in Singapore has been postponed for the second time this year. Initially slated to play *SCAPE Playspace earlier in January, the sudden cancellation of Australian festival Soundwave caused a ripple effect in the band's itinerary that prevented them from coming to Asia.
The good news was, promoters LAMC Productions quickly scrambled to find a new date for the postponed show, and eventually announced that the band was slated to play at Fort Gate, Fort Canning Park on September 27. Now with the highly-anticipated gig less than a week away, BMTH fans have been hit with new of yet another postponement - this time due to illness.
VANS helped made it possible for us to bring you this week's news. (What is this?)
Lead vocalist Oli Sykes' has contracted a nasty viral throat infection, which has been diagnosed as acute laryngitis. Doctors have since advised him that he needs immediate rest and cannot perform for the remainder of the tour. As much as a bummer that is, health always comes first and it certainly does sound like Sykes needs some time to recuperate.
We all wish Sykes a speedy recovery. In the meantime, LAMC stress that there will be another date announced soon and that "Bring Me The Horizon are fully committed to return to Singapore in early 2017 to make up for the canceled show".
Further details about the be new date and venue will be released in the coming days, along with full refund details from point of purchase. Ticket holders are encouraged to retain their tickets pending the announcement of new dates.
