Touring in support of their sixth album, Opposites, the band – named after fictional Cliff Richard merchandise, the Cliffy Biro – showcased a number of songs from the album, as well as some of their many hits.

Top 10 hits Mountains and Many of Horror – later a number one hit, called When We Collide, for The X Factor winner Matt Cardle – were particular highlights at a gig lapped up by a raucous and enthusiastic crowd.

And fans were quick to praise the gig on Twitter.

Lorna Jayne Whitaker said Biffy Clyro were ‘immense’, while Monica Dias said it was an ‘incredible gig’.
