Biffy Clyro at Ibiza Rocks 6th Birthday party Review

Ibiza Rocks 6th Birthday party, possibly THE gig to go to in Ibiza this summer, had a great line up for everyone to enjoy and who better to headline the evening than Scottish trio,
Biffy Clyro.

Supporting band, Morning Parade, warmed the crowd up nicely with their 90's dance influenced rock tracks and told me themselves afterwards that "being such huge fans of Biffy Clyro it was their baptism of fire" and "they had been honored to be playing" and DJ Zane Lowe ensured everyone was whipped up to frenzy level ready for the arrival of Biffy onstage.

The opening three songs were suitably heavy and rock, just what these gigs should be about, and I was left in no doubt that these guys were going to make it a night to remember . Plenty of head banging from the band and crowd alike before they finally said hello into the 4th song. Banging out firm favourites like Who's Got a Match, The Captain and That Golden Rule the entire set was just electric, with everyone jumping and singing along and practically every arm in the house was aloft. Lead singer Simon Neil even played a guitar riff with his teeth at one brief point proving they really are rock and roll and once we got to the romantically powerful Many of Horror track, every single person was singing along.  Finishing the night with their huge hit Mountains was the only option and we even witnessed a mosh-pit within the Ibiza Rocks crowd. 

Ibiza Rocks? Biffy Clyro certainly made sure it did!
