VIDEO: Oli Sykes (Bring Me The Horizon) Attacked On Stage

BringMeTheHorizon3

Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes was attacked on stage last night in Salt Lake City, Utah after calling out and provoking a group of hecklers. Don’t worry, we have the footage.

According to attendees, Sykes called out kids in the audience who were heckling him, referring to them as a number of obscentities and telling them to leave if they didn’t want to be there. Apparently, this didn’t phase the hecklers and Sykes decided to respond again, this time by throwing water on those he thought were to blame. Things seemed to calm down after that, but then, out of seemingly nowhere, a unknown concert goer jumped on stage and attempted to swing at Sykes. This was followed by a rush of people, some from the crowd, others from backstage, and a whole lot of drama (see it all after the jump).

The band has yet to comment on the situation, but Sykes is reported to be a-okay. BMTH left stage only momentarily before returning to finisht their set and still have dates left to perform.
