Bring Me The Horizon vocalist attacked on stage and releases statement

Yesterday evening Bring Me The Horizon headlined In The Venue in Salt Lake City, Utah. During the bands performance several members of the audience threw bottles and other objects at Oli Sykes after he stopped the bands performance after viewing a fan being attacked. Oli responded by inviting those responsible to come up and challenge him before throwing water over the crowd in the direction of those causing the problems. Oli took to the mic once again to tell the individuals to leave before one fan rushed the stage and attempted to attack Oli but was quickly dealt with by security.

Oli today made the following comment on his Tumblr:

Just to clear any rumours… Nothing happened last night apart from a bunch of soft lads stomped on a lil kids head 5 seconds into our set, so we stopped playing, had a bit of a banter with em telling em to do one, then some fatty gets on stage tries to hit me, in which he completely fails, misses and falls over, and then gets sparked out by someone In our touring party. The “crew” then responded by running around the venue, breaking a very young girls jaw and stamping on her, and injuring a few more of our young fans. Proper hard init.

Not a member in Bmth or any of our touring party got so much as a scratch, oh one did want me to know he fucked my wife though, which hit me hard as you know I’ve been happily married for a long time now :)

Fucking mongs eh? What can u do?

A comment on YouTube states that throughout the bands set there were at least ten fights during the night. The video of the incident can be viewed below.
