A couple weeks after Bring Me the Horizon had to nix the final two shows of their North American winter trek, the UK band has announced dates for a spring North American tour. The “Second Base Tour”, in support of the new album, amo, kicks off in May.
After performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Valentine’s Day, the band announced the next day that they had to cancel the remaining shows on their tour because singer Oli Sykes ruptured a vocal cord. Doctors told him if he continued to perform he could do permanent damage to his voice.
Now, it looks like a little vocal rest will enable Oli and company to return to the States for another run of dates. The band has filled in the gaps between previously announced festival appearances with a series of headlining gigs. Not on the schedule are the two shows the band was forced to miss on their winter trek — Phoenix and Las Vegas.
The new jaunt kicks off May 5th with a gig at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Jacksonville, Florida, and wraps with a set at the Sonic Temple festival in Columbus, Ohio, on May 19th. British rapper Scarlxrd will open the non-festival shows. Tickets will be available this Friday, March 1st, via Live Nation, and also at StubHub once shows sell out.
We caught BMTH at their January show in New York City — see our review and photo gallery here. Their new album, amo, is available at Reverb LP.
