Biffy Clyro to play only 2015 gig at Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh

18 September 2015, 09:50 | Written by Laurence Day

Biffy Clyro have announced their only U.K. show in 2015: at Edinburgh's annual Hogmanay celebrations.

In a statement, Biffy Clyro say: “We are so happy to come out of musical hibernation to kick off 2016 with the show on Hogmanay. We want to rock off the cobwebs and prepare for the year of da biff!! Nothing can compete with Edinburgh's celebrations and we hope to make it a special night for everyone!!”

Pete Irvine, Director of the city's Hogmanay, added: “We reckon it’s a real coup that Biffy have chosen Edinburgh’s Hogmanay not only for their first outing of 2015 but also to launch what looks like a very special year for them. Their stand-out performance two years ago headlining T in the Park reminded us that they are one of the most exciting live bands ever to come out of Scotland. Biffy have built a big international following and headlining an impressive Scottish line-up at Concert in the Gardens will please both the Scots and our audience who come from over 70 countries.”

Idlewild and Honeyblood are also set to perform at the event, in an all-Scottish line up at Concert In The Garden. Biffy Clyro last headlined the celebrations in 2010.

Further details will be revealed next month, but tickets are on sale next week from 10am 25 September.
