Snow Patrol return to Australia this coming August on the ‘Live and Acoustic’ tour which visits Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne, and sees the band performing for the first time at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.
Fresh on the heels of their North American stadium tour with Ed Sheeran, and appearances at Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil , the Australian shows see the Irish rockers performing as a three-piece featuring singer and guitarist Gary Lightbody, Johnny McDaid on guitar, piano and vocals and Nathan Connolly also on guitar and vocals.
According to promoters Live Nation, Snow Patrol will be performing songs live “as you’ve never heard them before” and all their best known hits will be included in the set-list.
Over a 25-year career, Snow Patrol has carved out a unique place for themselves.
Since their 1998 debut, Songs for Polarbears, Snow Patrol’s melancholy anthems of heartbreak and separation have mended hearts, and the band have emerged as musical prophets striking a chord in the minds and memories of listeners over six ground-breaking, confessional albums.
The band has racked up an impressive number of critical and commercial accolades, including more than 16 million global album sales, more than one billion global track streams, five UK Platinum Albums, as well as Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations.
With an equally huge fan base here in Australia Snow Patrol have received eight platinum ARIA accreditations and continue to be one of Australia’s biggest selling International artists.
