More news, no ads


The band made famous for singing Many of Horror, Wolves of Winter, and Bubbles returned to Cambridge for the first time in years on Saturday night.

Though Biffy Clyro's tour was initially intended for April 2021, the ironically named 'Fingers Crossed' tour was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

With opening act Bob Vylan, a sibling grime/indie/hip-hop duo hyping the crowd, this was certainly not a show to miss.

When the doors opened at 7pm, fans queued around the building, tickets in hand to enter a sold-out Cambridge Corn Exchange.

The audience were required to provide proof they had been fully vaccinated or bring evidence of a negative lateral flow test that had been taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the event.

As people flooded into the venue a buzz began to form as fans eagerly anticipated seeing the band they had waited so long to see perform live.

Before Biffy took to the stage a sibling duo with the same name - Bobby and Bobbie - known collectively as Bob Vylan opened the show with some meditation... to a heavy drum solo.

The duo's unexpected performance didn't end there, with lead singer Bobby scaling the balcony of the building during one of their songs.

After thoroughly warming up the crowd, Biffy Clyro took to the stage opening with Dum Dum from their new album The Myth of the Happily Ever After, which was released on October 22.

Playing a mix of songs from their old and new album, moshpits formed as fans showed appreciation for their favourite tunes.

The band chose Cambridge as the second show of the tour which runs until November 4.

Although the tour was originally intended for the release of the album A Celebration of Endings, with plans to feature songs from The Myth Of The Happily Ever After, due to the final date of the show an overwhelming majority of the performance was from the new release.

The show closed with Cop Syrup, a psychedelic rock song that lasts over six minutes.

As fans poured out of the venue when the show came to an end, it's safe to say to the alternative rock band left the crowd wanting more.
