Asked why BRING ME THE HORIZON hadn't done a U.K. headlining trek of its own in arenas, the band's singer, Oli Sykes, told NME, "I can't imagine us headlining arenas, at this point in time it's just not something I can see. MACHINE HEAD were a massive inspiration to us growing up and we were honored to be asked to do the tour. We're really excited."
