Indie-rock giants Snow Patrol are heading to the Yorkshire coast next summer for what promises to be a sensational night at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

The band behind such anthems as Chasing Cars, Run, You’re All I Have, Signal Fire, Called Out in the Dark and Take Back the City will bring their sensational live show to Britain’s largest open-air arena on Saturday July 4.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday November 29 via www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

Over a 25-year career, Snow Patrol have carved out a unique place for themselves. Since releasing their debut album, Songs for Polarbears, the band have racked up an impressive array of critical and commercial accolades, including more than 17 million global album sales, one billion-plus global track streams, five UK Platinum-selling albums, an Ivor Novello award and Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations.

The band — guitarist/vocalist Gary Lightbody, guitarists Johnny McDaid and Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson and drummer Jonny Quinn — broke into the mainstream in 2003 with their stunning album Final Straw, featuring Top 5 hit Run. 2006’s Eyes Open saw them truly propelled to a global audience as massive hit single Chasing Cars went on to become UK radio’s most played song of the 21st century.

After taking some time out, Snow Patrol returned in 2018 with the brilliant Wildness – their first studio album in seven years. The band followed up its huge success with a sensational live tour which included a homecoming gig in front of 35,000 fans in Bangor, Northern Ireland.
