With Bring Me The Horizon’s UK stadium tour now tantalizingly close we had a sit down to think about some of the stuff we think is going to happen at the shows.

Costumes

This is more just for the Halloween date in London (that we shall be popping along to) but if there isn’t plenty of people dressed up for Halloween we are going to be severely disappointed. That includes the bands too!

A Bit Less Rock Music

It’s kind of a given by now that BMTH aren’t really catering for the old deathcore crowd any more, which is probably wise considering the size of the venues that they’re playing (and the fact Count Your Blessings was pretty rubbish) and we’re expecting most of the set to be off of the last two albums especially. Perhaps more ‘Follow You’ than ‘Football Season Is Over’. Could we possibly have ‘Alligator Blood’ though please guys? Please? Olly? Cheers mate.

A Blinding Support Show

When you take a band like Enter Shikari out as your main support you have to be absolutely clear that there is every chance they are going to steal the show from you. Shikari have been on top form recently, especially when it comes to doing their own shows in arenas, and though they might not be able to have the full set-up considering they’re going to be supporting, Shikari are not a band to just rest on their laurels and have a chill one. Don Broco and Basement will also be there.

People From All Over

We mentioned earlier that BMTH have strayed far from their very heavy beginnings. Whilst this is a shame there are still people who hold on to those days and still like what they’re doing now, as well as their new direction having brought in a few (thousand) of the more Radio 1 crowd. It’s always lovely to see diversity at a gig and we are pretty sure that moshers and dancers are going to be out in equal force at these shows.

A Great Show In General

If Enter Shikari don’t manage to steal the show, that would mean BMTH will have put on on hell of a great show. We’re thinking lots of lights, lots of big black balloons like at Reading & Leeds, and hopefully four bands playing their little hearts out and sounding great while doing it.
