Some might say Scarborough was an unusual choice for Biffy Clyro to play, the costal town is quite remote and I guess they could have chosen to play an arena in any city of their choosing. But the opportunity to play an outdoor arena such as the Open Air Theatre with it’s rich history, may well have been the major factor, as well as being a great warm up before they headline festivals around Europe this summer.

They’re certainly no strangers to playing big stages, since their fifth album, 2009’s Only Revolutions landed, catapulting them into a stadium headline act delivering hit singles in an era dominated by pop and R&B acts.

Since then they have played to massive sold out crowds all over the globe, put out a further two albums, 2013’s Opposites and 2016’s Gold-selling Ellipsis, which both topped the UK album charts. They’ve won no fewer than four NME Awards, four Kerrang Awards as well as being nominated for Best British Group at The BRITS twice.

If all that wasn’t enough, they’ve recently penned a soundtrack for the Jamie Adams directed movie Balance, Not Symmetry, which debuts at Edinburgh International Film Festival on 23rd June 2019, with the screenplay written by Adams and Simon Neil.

To say this is an exciting show for the region is an understatement; fans are sure to flock to Scarborough in their droves, no doubt making this a sell out.

The show is on Friday 14th June 2019, Rockshot Mag are looking to bring you all the action in the form of a full live review along with all the images – keep an eye out for the full story appearing afterwards.
