Following the triumph of their latest album, That’s The Spirit, going to Number 1 in Canada, Australia and the US album chart, Number 2 in the UK and Top 5 in countries including Sweden, Holland, Austria and New Zealand, and the recent announcement of their first ever UK arena tour which includes two nights at The O2 Arena, Bring Me The Horizon are undeniably the new powerhouse in British music.
The band were thrilled to accept Teenage Cancer Trust’s invitation to headline The Royal Albert Hall on Friday 22 April and to honour the charity, and this landmark moment in their history, it is announced today that the band will release Bring Me The Horizon Live At The Royal Albert Hall in September 2016.
The Sheffield five-piece, who have have just completed the South American leg of a world tour that saw them play to a sold-out Alexandra Palace, will be accompanied by an orchestra for this one-off Royal Albert Hall performance making this one of the must-see gigs of 2016, with all proceeds from the show and the live album going towards helping the Teenage Cancer Trust with their brilliant work.
With the kind permission of Sony/RCA records, the show will be recorded, filmed and released by the specialist live music label – Live Here Now. The film will be directed by Towards Infinity’s Tim Sidwell who also directed the bands recent No1 Live At Wembley DVD for Live Here Now & Sony/RCA. Live Here Now Co-Founders MJ & Noggin said “We are excited and proud to be working with both Teenage Cancer Trust and Bring Me The Horizon again, the TCT Depeche Mode show we did a few years back was a great success but we hope we can surpass even that this time”.
The release will be co-ordinated and distributed exclusively by PledgeMusic. Co-Founder and President of PledgeMusic UK & Europe Malcolm Dunbar says of the project that “we are delighted to be working with Bring Me The Horizon again and The Live Here Now team to bring this very special Teenage Cancer Trust concert to the fans. PledgeMusic have worked with BMTH very successfully on both of their recent albums and the ambition is to deliver a result for the band and the charity that matches that…..and more.”
For every young person with cancer Teenage Cancer Trust supports, there is another the charity cannot currently reach. This must change. Teenage Cancer Trust needs to raise at least £80 million in the next five years to help every young person with cancer in the UK have access to the specialist care they provide. Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall will continue to play a pivotal role in achieving this ambitious goal.
In 16 years, over 200 artists will have performed at the Royal Albert Hall for the charity with nearly 500,000 fans in attendance including over 2,000 young people with cancer. The shows have raised over £20 million in that time.
