In case you’ve been living under a rock, this month worldwide sensations Bring Me The Horizon kicked off their First Love world tour in the UK after a brief run in Europe. During this run, a lot has happened including the band finally taking a long-awaited trip down memory lane with some ollldddd tracks gracing the setlist.
There’s a lot to recap, so here’s everything that happened so far:
The tour kicked off in Hamburg, Germany on the 6th November, and the band had some lovely pictures to share on their social media.
Then on the road, the band celebrated frontman Oli Sykes Birthday during their Amsterdam date on the 20th November.
As well as being Oli’s birthday, this date was especially fun for the audience because Bring Me took it back to the beginning for one night and added some very old tracks that haven’t seen live performances in years and it was…. phenomenal.
Originally, before kicking off in Europe they announced their ‘First Love‘ setlist themselves, compiled of mainly newer tracks with one “older” song ‘It Never Ends’ from their third studio album ‘There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret.’ But things changed after the Amsterdam date.

It seems no one misses old Bring Me more than Bring Me The Horizon themselves as the band has now created a custom melody of their older works to perform live during this tour which frontman Sykes has stated “may be the last time we ever play this.’ The melody is made up of the following tracks in order of which comes first; ‘The Comedown‘ from Suicide Season, ‘(I Used To Make Out With) Medusa’ from Count Your Blessings, ‘Diamonds Aren’t Forever’ also from Suicide Season and ‘Re: They Have No Reflections‘ from their first EP This Is What The Edge Of Your Seat Was Made For.
But why are they playing them now? Most of these tracks aren’t the ‘typical’ popular songs from their record and haven’t seen the light of day since the band toured with that record, which goes all the way back to 2008 for ‘Re: They Have No Reflections.’ It appears the band do miss playing those older tracks, even if it is for one last time, and Sykes still has his insane vocal capabilities that only need some dusting off till they’re just as they were back in 2006.
Then, of course, there are some more weird tour pictures:
