Bring Me the Horizon have postponed their much anticipated show in Auckland for a second time.

The rock band was originally supposed to play in January this year, but were forced to cancel when Australia's Soundwave festival fell through as they were coming off the back of their Aussie dates.

This time, they were meant to play Auckland's Logan Campbell centre this Sunday, October 25 but have been forced to postpone again as their lead singer is ill.


In an official statement released today, organisers said: "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."

The band have are "fully committed" to make this show happen though, and plan to return in early 2017.

Details will be released soon regarding when and how you can see these guys play and ticket holders are encouraged to hold on to their tickets for the new dates.

However, if you'd rather, you can get a full refund from the place you bought them.
