Snow Patrol play intimate New York show

It warms them up for tonight’s Manhattan performance

Snow Patrol played a tiny New York gig at the city’s Crobar club last night (September 7).

The band performed a full set at the private party following a troubled set the previous night in Atlanta during which they experienced several technical difficulties.

Watched by a crowd that included Kiefer Sutherland and We Are ScientistsKeith Murray, the band were joined on stage by Martha Wainwright for ‘Set The Fire To The Third Bar’. Wainwright sings guest vocals on the version which appears on the group’s current album ‘Eyes Open’.
