Axed: Bring Me The Horizon, Toby Keith, Amy Schumer

Frontman’s illness forces Bring Me The Horizon to bail on Australia, New Zealand … Toby Keith postpones tonight’s gig in South Carolina … Amy Schumer cites scheduling conflicts as she refunds four dates.

Bring Me The Horizon canceled its shows in Adelaide and Melbourne, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand, this week, as frontman Oliver Sykes needed time to recover from a viral throat infection.

The metal singer issued a formal apology and notice of cancellation Sept. 20 to the fans through his Instagram, the same day on which he was scheduled to perform in Adelaide. In that message, he said his last performance in Sydney was a real struggle, but despite taking 24 hours to recover, his symptoms worsened.

Word was later given that Melbourne would need to be called off as well, although the group will reportedly be returning Down Under in 2017.

Bring Me The Horizon’s next scheduled date is now at The O2 Arena in London Oct. 31.

Toby Keith and the  in Florence, S.C., have mutually agreed to rebook his show tonight, due to gas prices.

“This is a major show for the region which attracts fans within a one- to two-hour drive and beyond,” Florence Civic Center General Manager Kendall Wall said on Keith’s website. “We understand the growing concerns for Toby’s fans and our own fans, as we’ve been receiving distress messages over the past couple days.

“It would be unfair for these fans and unrealistic for them to travel given the current dismal situation with gas prices and availability.”

No connection between the incident and rescheduling has been announced.
