Have your say

CHART-topping Scottish alternative rockers Biffy Clyro look set to sell-out their Sheffield Motorpoint Arena show next week and we have tickets to be won.

The concert - on Saturday, March 23 - promotes their latest and sixth studio album, Opposites, which gave them their first UK number one last month.

Rock trio Simon Neil (guitar, lead vocals), James Johnston (bass, vocals) and Ben Johnston (drums, vocals), have also had top 10 UK singles including Mountains, That Golden Rule and, possibly their most famous hit, Many of Horror.

X Factor winner Matt Cardle’s debut single was a studio version of the song, under the title When We Collide, which became the 2010 UK Christmas number one single.

Their song featured on the end credits of the film Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Support is City and Colour, the alias of Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green.
