Biffy Clyro at Download Festival 2022

Biffy Clyro headlined the main stage on the third and final day of Download Festival 2022, and earned huge plaudits for their performance.

Their second time topping the bill at Donnington, they once again proved themselves as top tier headliners filling their set with material from 2020’s ‘A Celebration Of Endings’, 2021’s ‘The Myth Of The Happily Ever After’ and a host of huge tracks from their extensive catalogue.

Rumours of an arena tour were alluded to, and the festival performance would have had fans pleading for some tour information.

Just eight days after the Download 2022 set, fans got what they were wishing for and a UK and Ireland tour was announced.

Who is the support act?

Heading out on tour with Biffy Clyro this autumn are British metalcore band Architects.

Originally formed in Brighton, the band has released no fewer than nine studio albums, including their newest record For Those That Wish to Exist which was released in 2021.

What have Biffy Clyro said about the tour?

Following the tour announcement, Biffy Clyro said: "It’s been way too long... we are so excited to announce our tour of UK/Ireland this November and over the moon to have Architects join us on what is going to be a very special tour. You will not want to miss it”.
