Bring Me The Horizon: ‘We threw a midget offstage once’

Frontman Oli Sykes helped fan back into the audience after he ended up on stage

Bring Me The Horizon have revealed that they once threw a “midget” off stage and into the audience when playing live.

Stressing that the man who made his way onto the stage at one of their Sheffield gigs wanted to be thrown back into the crowd, drummer Matt Nicholls told MoshCam, “Our singer threw a midget off stage. The midget wanted it. He crowdsurfed over and there was no barriers and he couldn’t get back into the crowd because he’s obviously a little guy so our singer threw him up. He was wearing a full length leather coat so it was pretty cool.” Scroll down to see the video interview now.
