Get well soon, Oli!

Bring Me The Horizon have postponed the remainder of their Australia and New Zealand tour, due to illness.

Frontman Oli Sykes has been diagnosed with acute laryngitis, and has been advised to rest while he recovers. 

The band are "Fully committed to return" in early 2017, to perform in Melbourne, Adelaide and New Zealand. All other future shows are expected to go ahead.

According to Live Nation, details "Will be released shortly with regard to when and how fans will be able to see the band perform."

Oli has made a statement on his Instagram, telling fans that "I'm feeling your pain just as much as you are feeling mine". 


Adelaide, all I can say is I'm sorry. We won't be able to perform the show tonight. The concert for me in Sydney 2 nights ago was a real struggle for me to sing, we got through it & I was really hoping a day off yesterday and 24 hours of vocal rest would be sufficient... Unfortunately I've woken up today & my symptoms have worsened, my throat & face has swollen up, along with ulcers, rashes & other not so great problems. So it appears I have some kind of viral infection. I'm so sorry to let you all down, but believe me when I say no one is more gutted than me. Right now the shows are one of the main things helping me get through a personally difficult period of my life, & being told that I'm not in any condition to perform, & having to go back and sit alone in a hotel room until this infection subsides, well, is the last thing I wanna be doing. I guess I just wanted to let you all know that these decisions are never taken lightly, the complete opposite tbh, we live for the shows, they are usually the only highlight of our days, & for anyone that was supposed to see us tonight, I'm feeling your pain just as much as you are feeling mine. Hopefully we can make it back up to you in the not too distant future. Oli x
