Snow Patrol Announce New Dates
Currently at No.1 in the album charts with their stunning new album ‘Eyes Open’, Snow Patrol have just announced their biggest live dates yet including an appearance at the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Thursday 30th November 2006.
Renowned for their stunning live performances, in 2005 the band scaled the heights supporting U2 throughout Europe, appearing at Live 8 in both Hyde Park and Scotland whilst somehow sticking to their core values: beautiful powerful songs underscored by some of the most poignant and telling lyrics in rock.
It’s two years now since their unforgettable (and Ivor Novello winning) anthem of love and longing ‘Run’ reached number five in the UK charts and propelled "Final Straw" to number three. After ten years together it was the culmination of years of faith and hard work. New album "Eyes Open” is a collection of songs which more than makes good on the promise of its predecessor, 2004’s two million selling Final Straw.
"There are swaggering bands, bands who are in your face. And then there are bands who get hold of you somewhere else. I think it's a heart thing, an intimacy thing. Like you know them and they know you. I think we are one of those bands." So says Snow Patrol singer and chief songwriter Gary Lightbody.
Tickets costing £22.50 (Max 4 per person) go on sale 9am Friday 12th May 2006.
