Snow Patrol begin European tour

Band dedicate a track to Northern Ireland football team

Snow Patrol began their European tour last night (October 9) at Copenhagen’s Vega Bar.

The band played a set mixing songs from their recent albums, ’Eyes Open’ and ’Final Straw’.

Singer Gary Lightbody dedicated ’Open Your Eyes’ to the Northern Ireland football team saying: “We’re only a tiny small little country, and we beat Spain the other day. This song is for the Northern Ireland Football Team – I love them!”


Clearly in a generous mood Lightbody also dedicated ’Run’ to the sold out crowd telling them Copenhagen was one of the “most beautiful cities in the world.”

Snow Patrol played:

‘Spitting Games’



‘It’s Beginning To Get To Me’


‘Headlights On Dark Roads’

‘Grazed Knees’

‘Chasing Cars’

‘Shut You Eyes’

‘How To Be Dead’

‘Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking’

‘Make This Go On Forever’

‘Ways And Means’


‘You’re All I Have’

‘Open Your Eyes’

‘Tiny Little Fractures’

The band are now set to release their new single ’Set The Fire To The Third Bar’ featuring Martha Wainwright on November 13.
