Snow Patrol plot whistle-stop capital cities tour

Band set to play four gigs in two days

Snow Patrol are planning a tour of four capital cities in two days.

The ‘Take Back The Cities Tour’ is being staged in honour of the band’s comeback single ‘Take Back The City’.

It will see the band make a whistlestop tour of the British Isles.

The band start out at Dublin‘s The Gate Theatre at lunchtime on October 26, before moving on to Belfast Empire that evening.

The following day (October 27) they hit the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms, before ending up at London‘s Bloomsbury Theatre.

Tickets for the intimate shows are available for sale via the band’s mailing list, and allocated to applicants through a lottery draw.

Ticket holders will receive a free live CD containing highlights of the shows, getting the artwork on the night, with details of how to download the music the following day.

Entrance lobbies to each venue will be decorated with drawings by pupils from local schools, who have been asked to come up with representations of ‘A Hundred Million Suns’, the title of the band’s new album.

The record, their fifth, is released on October 27.
