Bring Me The Horizon reveal huge plans for their All Points East festival slot

It sounds like it's going to be a memorable performance

Bring Me The Horizon have revealed more details about their headline slot at All Point’s East in May.

The event, taking place at London’s Victoria Park on May 31, will be the band’s first headline festival slot. To mark the occasion, the band have revealed that they are planning a special set which will be longer and include rarities.

Speaking to Gigwise, keyboardist Jordan Fish said: “The show is going to be completely different to what we’re doing at any other festival and not only in terms of the setlist.

“We’ve got a much longer setlist than we would get at any other festival, we’ve got two hours which is longer than we’ve ever played before, and it gives us the opportunity to play a much more varied set and do some old stuff that we wouldn’t necessarily do, which is going to be exciting for the fans I think.

“We’re going to do some songs that we haven’t played for a long time and it allows us to fit in some newer stuff as well, I guess it means we really don’t have to compromise on the set or drop anything.”

Fish added that the band were enjoying the freedom that comes with planning a longer set. He added: “There’s going to be something for every one of our fans there.

“We’re going to do some older stuff just because of the history of the band and we’re probably going to be playing some new songs that we’ve never played before off of the new album and obviously everything in between is going to get a good run too.

“It’s going to be the most comprehensive set for a Bring Me The Horizon fan that we’ve ever played.”

Earlier this year, the band scored their first ever number one with ‘amo.’ The band’s sixth album, named after the Portuguese word for “I love”, shot to the top of the charts with 27,000 combined sales.

In a five star review of amo, NME described the record as “an odyssey of diversity in sound, proof that they can do what they want and get away with it.”
