Fans of Scottish rock titans Biffy Clyro will be able to see their heroes play live at six intimate shows in 2021, ahead of the band’s headline spot at Download Festival.

Branded as The Fingers Crossed Tour, the mini series of shows will see the group return to venues that they haven’t played in ten years or more.

The band announced via their social media: “We’ve decided to announce a short run of dates at intimate venues for April 2021. These dates are not intended to replace the arena tour, but given the current uncertainty of large scale indoor arena shows in the UK, we feel they will give us the best chance to play live to our fans as soon as possible, ahead of the Download Festival next June.”
