It comes after Biffy Clyro rescheduled their upcoming ‘Fingers Crossed’ UK tour following the UK government’s recent announcement of its ‘roadmap’ out of coronavirus lockdown.
The gigs, which were set to take place in a number of venues that the trio haven’t played “in over 10 years”, have now moved the gigs to October and November 2021, with the live dates set to kick off in Liverpool on October 29 and end on November 4 in Bristol.
In March, Biffy also rearranged their huge summer concert in Glasgow to September 9, moving it from Bellahouston Park to Glasgow Green.
See the full list of upcoming Biffy Clyro gigs below:
9 – Glasgow Green, Glasgow
16 – Cardiff Bay’s Alexandra Head, Cardiff
29 – University (Mountford Hall), Liverpool
30 – Corn Exchange, Cambridge
31 – O2 Academy, Sheffield
2 – O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
3 – O2 Guildhall, Southampton
4 – O2 Academy, Bristol
Last month, the band told NME on the red carpet last month that they’ve already finished the follow-up to ‘A Celebration Of Endings‘.
“The title has changed and we’ve got to keep it top secret at the moment, but we finished it literally last week,” Neil told NME. “We weren’t intending on doing it, but we’ve ended up making an amazing album.”
Meanwhile, Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil is to host six specialist shows on BBC Radio Scotland, starting this month.
The Simon Neil Experience will hear Neil “explore his love of music and share tracks from artists that have inspired him as a musician and music fan”. Each show will focus on a particular genre including rock, pop, experimental, heartbreak, soundtracks, and metal.
