Snow Patrol return to the Royal Albert Hall for two special nights this winter. The band first took to the Auditorium stage ten years ago almost to the day, back in 2009, before their extended six-year hiatus. This time around, the band will play re-imagined versions of tracks from their catalogue, as well as new songs from their forthcoming Reworked album. Zoe Mead of Wyldest and musician James Bay joined the abnd on stage for duets.
The Scottish-Irish alt-rock outfit broke into the mainstream in 2003 with debut album Final Straw, but it’s their sophomore effort, 2006’s Eyes Open, which featured Chasing Cars, the most widely played song of the 21st century on UK radio, that propelled the band to greater international fame.
"I don’t know what to say about last night really other than WOW! Royal Albert Hall is the most extraordinary music venue on planet Earth and it was a privilege to play it again. Last night was our favourite time playing it. Thank you to everyone that was there." (Twitter, @Snowpatrol, 21 November 2019)
