Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro announced a huge UK & Ireland Arena Tour. They will play Dublin’s 3ARENA on October 7 and The SSE Arena in Belfast the day before. Biffy Clyro’s new album A Celebration Of Endings will be released on May 15.
Biffy Clyro have revealed details of their first full-scale UK & Ireland arena tour since 2016. The “champions of stadium rock” (The Guardian) start the tour with two huge shows in Scotland, and the schedule also includes shows in Dublin and Belfast.
The news follows the release of two very different songs from the new album. The apocalyptic synths and bombastic beats of lead track ‘Instant History’ and the instant grat track ‘End Of’ presented a mix of their visceral roots and their ongoing flair for unpredictability.
Fans who pre-order the album by 4pm on Monday, March 16 will receive access to an exclusive pre-sale for tour tickets. The pre-sale opens at 10am on Wednesday and remains open until tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday, March 20.
Dates for their full tour can be found here.
In addition, Biffy Clyro will also play Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee in May.
“This is a very forward-looking album from a personal perspective and a societal perspective,” explains frontman Simon Neil. ‘A Celebration of Endings’ is the band’s eighth record and follows their previous two studio albums – ‘Ellipsis’ (2016) and ‘Opposites’ (2013) – both of which went straight to #1 on the Official Albums Chart.
Tickets go on sale Friday March 20 at 10 AM from usual outlets.
