British rockers Bring Me The Horizon have cancelled the remaining dates of their Australian tour due to frontman Oli Sykes' illness.
The metal stars were forced to cancel a concert in Adelaide on Tuesday (20Sep16) after Oli came down with a viral throat infection, and have now pulled shows in Melbourne on Thursday (22Sep16) and Friday (23Sep16).
A statement from bosses at the tour's promoter Live Nation indicated the singer's throat infection had now been diagnosed as acute laryngitis.
"Live Nation and Unify regret to announce that the remaining dates for Bring Me The Horizon’s tour of Australia will not go ahead due to illness," the statement read.
"This is due to issues with Oli Sykes’ viral throat infection, which has been diagnosed as acute laryngitis. Medical advice is that he needs immediate rest and cannot perform for the remainder of the tour."
The band has vowed to make amends for the abandoned tour by scheduling new dates next year (17).
In their original statement cancelling the Adelaide gig, the band said, "Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight's show in Adelaide. Oli has a viral infection which has caused his throat to become very infected and he is hardly able to speak, let alone sing."
The rockers' next scheduled tour date is back in their native Britain on 31 October (16), when they will play London's O2 Arena.
