Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Having quickly sold out their run of intimate, headline shows across the UK, Scottish indie-rockers Biffy Clyro have confirmed a huge show at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on Friday 25 June 2021. The band will be joined by Doncaster rebel Yungblud, punk-rockers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Mercury Prize nominees Porridge Radio.
The announcement comes as the band sit atop the official UK album chart with their ninth full-length, A Celebration Of Endings; their third consecutive release to achieve the feat. Taking to Twitter to thank their fans, the trio expressed their pride for the record. “Thanks for listening,” they added, “we love you, we miss you.”
To date the band have released five singles from the record, most recently unveiling the soaring Space shortly before the album’s release.
Bristol punk heroes IDLES have also announced five headline UK shows, culminating with two consecutive nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
The band are currently preparing for their anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Mercury Prize-nominated Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Ultra Mono, their third studio album, is due for release on 25 September 2020 and features recent singles A Hymn and Model Village.
As well as their string of headline dates, IDLES will be performing a series of live stream shows across the globe towards the end of August.
Comedian Jimmy Carr has teamed up with the mighty Just The Tonic for a very special, socially distant live performance in a field in Nottingham on Saturday 29 August 2020.
One of the first major comedy events to return to the UK, fans will sit in socially distant groups with access to a fully stocked bar and food vendors. Jimmy Carr himself will perform on a huge stage with vast screens accessible to all.
Elsewhere, Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow has announced headline dates supporting his forthcoming fifth studio album. As well as recently celebrating ten years since the release of his breakthrough Early In The Morning LP, he recently unveiled new singles Headlights and If I Should Go.
The four live dates will see him take to Manchester, London, Bristol and Birmingham in March and April 2020.
Having recently teamed up with Taylor Swift on her surprise Folklore LP, Bon Iver has added an extra date to his rescheduled UK shows, now also performing a second night at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on 2 November 2021.
