Angry Bring Me The Horizon Fans Stormed The Stage After Mid-Show Cancelation In Jakarta


A mid-show cancellation by alternative metal stars Bring Me The Horizon caused a mini-riot recently. Technical difficulties plagued the band’s November 10th performance at the Ancol Beach City International Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.

11 songs into that set, the group were forced to shut it down, as concerns over the structural integrity of the stage and resulting technical issues with the stage production became more severe. The cancellation occurred during a performance of the song “DiE4u“. Angry fans soon took to storming the stage afterwards, and engaging in a singalong by themselves.

Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oli Sykes commented via an Instagram story about the concert this past Saturday, November 11th, stating:

“While we were performing last night, we got pulled off after one of our songs due to concerns from our crew and some of the local crew that the staging, the trust, basically a lot of the venue was structurally unsound.

It was bouncing so much that a lot of the video monitors, speakers, basically everything was bouncing at a really concerning amount and there were serious concerns that something would happen. The structure could’ve fallen and hurt people or worse, so we had no choice but to cancel the show.

Unfortunately due to that situation, we can’t play tonight either. We’ve looked at everything we could do. We kinda suggested that we take our video screens away, we take out lights away and just play some kind of stripped back show.”

Promoter Ravel Jundary issued a statement on the matter as well, offering:

“I, Ravel Junardy as the promoter of Ravel Entertainment, would like to clarify and apologize profusely for the lack of a setlist for the main performers on the first day of the show due to technical difficulties.

And we regret to inform you that the second day of the show had to be cancelled. As a form of responsibility, Ravel Entertainment will provide proportional refunds for the first day and also full refunds for the second day.”
