Bring Me The Horizon has returned to the land down under with an explosive show paying tribute to Architects band member, Tom Searle who lost his battle with cancer just last month.
“Tom was an incredible songwriter, every song we sing is in his honour. I like to think that his spirit is with us tonight” says Sam Carter the vocalist for the Architects.
Architects Guitarist, Tom Searle lost his three year long battle with cancer in August this year and Bring Me the Horizon and Architects performed an emotional show in his honour.
Bring Me The Horizon had also joined the Teenage Cancer Trust, who played live at Albert Hall in the UK earlier this year.
On Friday night, Brisbane’s Riverstage was packed with eager fans who have been waiting for BMTH’s return since their last Australian Tour in 2013.
Fans had dived into the mosh pit as soon as they heard the support acts starting, fists going high in air in celebration, it was always going to be a long night of head banging and crowdsurfing amongst the spectators.
“The choice of the opening acts was a great decision. When I found out that both my favourite bands (Architects and Bring Me the Horizon) were playing, I bought my ticket straight away. I’ve been waiting since 2013 for their return and Iv been counting down the days.” says metal fan, Darian Coldrick.
Architects stopped one of their songs and ordered the crowd to dedicate a moment of silence in memory of the fallen guitarist.
“Bring Me The Horizon’s opening number was phenomenal, each time I rewatch it on my phone It still get goosebumps” says BMTH fan Jordan Wessling
Even Oliver Skyes had dedicated “Can you feel my heart” to Tom Searle and the crowd watched how passionate both artist’s performed their work.
“Such an emotional and heart warming concert. My heart dropped when I saw Oliver Skyes getting upset while singing Can You Feel My Heart… Very raw and empowering concert, they played their best for Tom’s spirit” says Darian.
BMTH play Adelaide Tuesday 20th, and two shows in Melbourne on the 22nd and 23rd before flying out to New Zealand. The band then head back to the UK to perform final tour dates in the UK and EU.
