The Snow Patrol Thread

Recommended Posts

Yes, I have a standing ticket. I’m really short so I have to be at the front otherwise I’ll be seeing people’s head through the gig.

 

In Leeds doors open at 6.00 pm as well. I arrived at 11.00 am and there’re a few people already here. So, now I’ll just waiting.

 

Oh cool, how was the show? I never get a standing ticket for shows as I'm short and if I couldn't see Coldplay in the flesh because I'm so short, I'd probably cry.

Did Snow Patrol play Run, or Chasing Cars? Also, how did you occupy your time while in the queue?

I love Snow Patrol and I have seen them twice. They put on an amazing show, almost like a religious experience in terms of how much I get into their music. I know they aren't a religious band but man, they put on a great show! Gary is such a humble rock star. :)

Gary has a great voice as soulful as Chris......Run is really a signature song for all kinds of Lighting up~

I also really enjoy "Open Your Eyes." "Run" is similar to that song in the sense of how it sounds cinematic. Does that make sense? :)

Why didn't I see this thread earlier!?

 

I am a huge fan of theirs since last year but I always liked their music. Their last album is amazing.

Open Your Eyes, Run and Called Out In The Dark are amazing songs. Crack The Shutters is my favourite of theirs though.

I am really enjoying their latest album Wildness. I went to their show in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on January 14th and they were incredible live!!!

Hi! Yes I'm seeing them this Saturday 2nd February at Wembley Arena. Doors are 6pm for my show so I'm thinking of getting there for 5pm. How about you? I have a ticket for a seat by the way. I'm guessing you have a standing ticket as you're saying you want to get to the front?

Hi, how was their gig?

I'm looking forward to see some videos of their show!

Have been to 2 shows now and can't get enough..there was a time when Snow Patrol and Coldplay were the bands that helped me sooo much trough dark times. Somehow Coldplay got more important but always listened to SP in between . Now that I saw them live and met Gary ( and all the boys except Pablo ) I can say they are sooo great live and lovely to fans . Def going again :heart:

Wow, did you meet 4 out of the 5 Snow Patrol members??!!!! Amazing. They're great musicians, Gary's lines are emotional, Jonny's a great drummer, Nathan's a very good lead guitarist and Johnny McDaid is an amazing pianist/guitar player/singer as well! I hope you will get to meet Paul one day!

Bass players are often last but not least!!!

Hello,

Sounds cinematic? what does it mean? trying to get your point~ :) I did check it and saw the official video which is part of a film, an interesting idea of making MV, and a surprising illustration at the end after all the speed driving~ personally, I still think Run is much better a song (one is hard to imagine how it was coming into Gary's guitar after a dangerous incident...and became a breakthrough song during their most difficult phase)...I read that some people would cry in tears in private corners once hearing this song...this song really illustrates a hard/sad or even painful/pessimistic emotional/psychological state while a love/light/faith can lift/light you up onto the ground.... The family name Lightbody might indicate such inherence:idea:.

According to the Wiki introduction, "Open Your Eyes" has been used in many scenarios/by organizations, partially due to its *lyrics*, I guess, especially some charity ones, such as Save the Children~ [Gary seems involving certain charities for children/people with depression linked to his own struggling~ a "revealing" interview ~ hope it could be taken as lessons/warnings yet understanding for someone who is inclined to any substance abuse, mental difficulties and need more self-control/care & love. Good to know Meditation, Qigong and Acupuncture have helped him effectively. Another link: How Ed Sheeran, Monica from Friends and daily meditation helped Snow Patrol’s singer Gary Lightbody find his way back from years of drink and depression]

By some public introductions and reviews, Wildness seems quite personal but also a grander view on life...and the piano sound, the ocean, and a lonely piano man in "What If This Is All The Love You Ever Get", really expresses the protagonist's inner world~ and triggers general sympathy and compassion in humanity......in psychological/emotional or even spiritual realities: love is infinite, within you, and around you too~ we are all connected in a way that a common 3D relationship *ending* (by death or by memory or "separation"- in the interview, his father's conditions might be another sad/anxiety thing for him - it is surly very challenging. There is a very touching movie called The Notebook which is about the Alzheimer's ) could mean that our relating way has changed from certain perspectives, and this happening might be a waking-up call for our souls to truly explore and understand who we are and what this life on earth is all about? Hence we may begin to perceive ourselves/others differently......

Sorry for "writing a bit too much" as I just searched the internet for a few updates... and I visited UK/Ireland last summer. Like what I imagined before, the ocean and the music born out it have some intrinsic characters/textures...the echoing piano sound like the inner waves/sound to our soul... and lots of music along the trip~ really love:heart:

That's why I have to get to the venue very early for every show that I got standing tickets. :laughing:

Of course they played both songs. They play them every show just like Coldplay have to play Yellow and Viva la Vida every shows or the fans will riot.

I'd love to hear them play more songs from the new album but they've got too many great songs from the previous album, so, that's okay.

My favourite would be Make This Go On Forever, What If This Storm Ends? and Open Your Eyes.

 

Here are some pics from the show : https://flic.kr/s/aHsm9CJGxH

I love What If This Storm Ends? so much! Open Your Eyes is one of my favourite SP songs ;D

It's a great singalong as well.

I went to their concert on february 16th. It was amazing. I was honestly expecting less, but it was so good that i couldn't listen to any music the following day because it didn't live up to the concert. Just Say Yes and Called Out In The Dark performed live are perfect.

Yes!!! Aren't they?

To be honest, they are my favorite band besides Coldplay ATM.

 

It's so sad they had to cancel all of their shows this month because their piano and guitar player Johnny McDaid underwent an immediate surgery on his neck. Also, guitarist Nathan Connolly had nerve damage to his hand so he was immediately replaced by a good friend. So, they have bad luck these days. I feel so bad for them.

 

I was so excited for their performance at Bospop (Netherlands) next week but this one's cancelled as well. Fortunately I already saw them for the first time live on the 14th of January in Amsterdam this year. They were GREAT.

They are coming back to Portugal this summer. They are playing in a festival in the same day as Keane. Too good to be true. But unfortantely i can't go.

 

But there's something on Snow Patrol's sound that no one else has. It's such a smooth and comfy sound.

 

PS: Check out The Reindeer Section. It's a super group created by Gary.

I'm in love with Soon! Both versions!

It's so funny to see we all have different taste. I don't like Soon because it has a weird guitar chord in it but it is nice to know he wrote it for his father that has dementia.

Oh, i love Soon because of the lyrics.

 

"Life won't flash before your eyes

Instead we'll fall away then melt like snow

The secret storms of your wild youth

Now just gentle breezes, warm and faint"

This song is often overlooked by fans because it's from their second album. (And people don't lisen to their two first albums that much). But if you are a Snow Patrol fan, don't miss this song.

 

Such a shame that their first two albums have been labeled as "bad".
