The gigs were due to support the trio's forthcoming new album, A Celebration Of Endings, but Biffy have said in a statement: "Unfortunately, we are postponing our UK/Eire, Europe and Australia tour dates due to COVID 19.

"We were hoping that we were going to be able to announce replacement shows, which is why we have waited so long to postpone them, but unfortunately with the current situation that has not been possible.

"We’ll have news for you and be out to see you as soon as we can. We love and miss you."
