A pyro-fueled show from metal heavyweights Bring Me The Horizon warmed up a capacity Utilita Arena crowd on what was a bitterly cold evening on Tyneside.

Bring Me The Horizon’s status has been on the rise for some years, to the point where the group have become festival headliners in their own right. Subsequently, it was no surprise that the group’s first headline date in the region since 2013 was a sell-out.

What’s more the undercard for the evening’s proceedings was equally as strong. A triple bill of hard-rocking talent got the show underway at 6.30 pm with Static Dress, Cassyette, and US-based outfit Bad Omens all gracing the arena stage.

Bring Me The Horizon's state-of-the-art show was both groundbreaking and interactive. Video game-themed multimedia segments ushered the group onto the stage as a high-octane cannon propelled confetti throughout the arena.

The Sheffield-based outfit opened their set with Dark Side, Empire and an electrifying rendition of Mantra. The stage set at the top of the show mimicked the inside of a church with stained glass windows, whilst the majority of the band performed from risers at the rear.

Following recent headline sets at both Download and Leeds Festival the group are no strangers to big stage productions. And the band’s latest Newcastle show was no exception to that rule. Huge video screens featured at the rear and sides alongside risers and stage dancers. Whilst frequent pyro fuelled the band’s combustible performance. You could feel the heat from the on-stage flames throughout the arena.

Oli Sykes commanded the audience throughout. He didn't think twice about stopping the show to ensure the fans were ok when they required assistance. Following an “Ey up" in his best Yorkshire accent, the frontman said: “We missed you. Did you miss us?” Of course, the answer was a resounding “Yes”.

There were many highlights during the show, including a stripped-back rendition of Strangers, a laser-fuelled airing of Kingslayer, along with a brutal performance of what Oli called a "golden oldie" by way of Diamonds. And if that wasn't enough, the band recorded segments of the Newcastle audience singing for inclusion on a track on their forthcoming album.

As the group hurtled towards the finish line, the tattooed frontman ventured into the pit and walked along the front row singing to fans throughout the whole of Drown. Some even managed to get a prized selfie with the man himself.

The main set came to a euphoric close with Can You Feel My Heart. A song and a performance containing more energy than a case of Red Bull. The track came replete with an explosive ticker tape finale. On that note, I guess you could say the Newcastle audience got a lot of bang for their buck in more ways than one. Just like the band’s onstage pyrotechnics, on Tuesday evening Bring Me The Horizon were on fire in Newcastle.
