Oli & a monkey, Red Square, Moscow, Russia, 2009.
The band played in Yekaterinburg, a small town on the European/Asian border in Russia about 3 years ago. They opened the doors early because they were scared the kids outside were going to freeze to death. The barrier broke, hence all the security at the front trying to prevent it from collapsing. Those kids were nuts.
MTV Russia filmed the gig & I think the footage ended up on the Suicide Season remix CD as bonus footage, though I’m not 100% on that.

Seems like there’s enough of you interested in these pics to warrant posting more, so here you go:

I was Bring Me The Horizon’s tour manager for close to 5 years. I have a shit tonne of photos shot over that period that are sitting on my hard drive doing nothing. While posting pictures of BMTH isn’t what I want to do with this thing, I figure that plenty of their fans might want to see them. So, if this pic gets a bunch of notes, then I guess there’ll be enough demand to post the rest of them & I will do so.
