Biffy ClyroScottish rockers Biffy Clyro perform at the O2 on the back of their sixth studio album 'Opposites'. Renowned for their energetic live performances, the three-piece from Kilmarnock hit the big time with their fifth album 'Only Revolutions' - which gained platinum status and was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize. Taking claim to possibly the worst name in rock, the band has previously linked their name to an Ayr United footballer and as a tribute to a biro belonging to Cliff Richard. There's also a school of thought that their moniker is an acronym for Big Imagination For Feeling Young 'Cos Life Yearns Real Optimism. Whatever the case, 'Only Revolutions' led to the rise of Biffy Clyro and the album of "irresistible tunes" was described as "Biffy's finest hour" by The Guardian. Not bad for a band that was started as a tribute to Nirvana.

 

About The O2 Arena

The centrepiece of the redeveloped Millennium Dome is the O2 Arena, the first purpose-built music venue in London. With a capacity of 23,000, it offers the rather soulless Wembley Arena some serious competition. Big name acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Killers, Justin Timberlake, Girls Aloud and Tina Turner have performed on stage, with the likes of Beyonce, AC/DC, Kings of Leon and Britney Spears set to appear in 2009.
