Later this year Bring Me The Horizon will embark on a gigantic full UK arena tour including shows at London’s o2 Arena, as well as shows in Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow. Back in April though, the band played an ear-shattering gig in Jacksonville, Florida and we’ve got some awesome pictures from the night. If you’re heading to their shows later this year – here’s what to expect.

Bring Me opened their show with the thunderous ‘Happy Song’ from latest album ‘That’s The Spirit’.
The show was a part of the Welcome To Rockville festival in April, which saw a headline slot for Shinedown following Bring Me’s set – but social media responses indicated that their set was one of the busiest of the entire weekend.
The Leeds quintet followed up the opening song with furious renditions of ‘Go to Hell, for Heaven’s Sake’ and ‘The House of Wolves’.
Earlier this summer, Sykes and co performed a massive set on The Other Stage at Glastonbury Festival.
In April the band also played a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust aided by an orchestra for the first time. A CD/DVD from the show will be released in September 2016.

The band’s latest album ‘That’s The Spirit’ was their highest-performing release ever in the UK, reaching Number Two on the album charts.
The band ploughed on during their break-neck set with a revisit to ‘Sempiternal’ track ‘Sleepwalking’.
The two day festival also saw performances from Anthrax, Distrubed, Rob Zombie and fellow Brits Bullet For My Valentine.
Later this year the band will undertake their biggest UK tour to date, including a show at London’s o2 Arena.
During the October/November arena tour, the band will also play Bournemouth, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Glasgow.
The Jacksonville set also saw them play fan favourite ‘Antivist’ during which the crowd threw their middle fingers in the air in unison.
Drummer Matt Nicholls was happy to get in on the explicit action too.
The band closed the performance with the thumping 2014 single ‘Drown’.
