Bring Me The Horizon singer attacked during show

Tuesday, October 4, 2011 12:18 PM PT

There was some drama at last night's Bring Me The Horizon show in Salt Lake City, UT. Apparently singer Oli Sykes grew tired of a few hecklers (and/or troublemakers) and dumped water on them, at which point someone jumped up on stage and tried to attack Sykes, resulting in a minor altercation. You can read various comments and accounts of the action here, but more importantly, fan-filmed video of the incident can be seen below.

Thus far the group has yet to comment publicly on the incident.

Update: Oliver Sykes has issued the following:

"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?"
