Bring Me the Horizon Welcome Orchestra for London’s Royal Albert Hall Show
Bring Me the Horizon have taken chances over the years, evolving their vibe from deathcore to the more melodic metalcore and involving more keyboards in their overall sound. But on Friday (April 22) in London, the band did something that they hadn't done before -- performing with a backing orchestra.
The special show at London's Royal Albert Hall was part of the annual Teenage Cancer Trust concert series, which typically draws top acts willing to perform shows for the charitable organization. At this event, Bring Me the Horizon played with the assistance of the Parallax Orchestra conducted by Simon Dobson.
Knowing that this would be a unique show, the band had arranged to have the show filmed and recorded and there are plans to release it this September. But for now, you can check out some fan-shot footage of performances above and below.
The show included the live debuts of the songs "Avalanche" (seen above) and "Oh No," while tracks like "It Never Ends" and "Empire (Let Them Sing)" made their first appearances in Bring Me the Horizon sets since 2014. As you might expects, some of the band's bigger tracks like "Happy Song," "Sleepwalking," "Throne," "Shadow Moses," "True Friends," "Can You Feel My Heart," "Antivist" and "Drown" were also part of the set list for the evening. Check out additional fan-shot videos and the full set list below.
