Have your say

ROCK superstars Snow Patrol play the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Tuesday, February 7 - and we have tickets to be won.

The Chasing Cars hitmakers are singer Gary Lightbody, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, drummer Jonny Quinn and keyboardist Tom Simpson.

The Irish/Scottish five piece have sold over 11 million albums and have been responsible for several era-defining singles, including Run, Chocolate, and Chasing Cars, which spent an incredible 104 weeks in the UK Top 75 and was voted song of the decade in a Channel 4 poll.

Their albums have been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, Grammys and MTV Europe Music Awards, with Final Straw landing them an Ivor Novello Award in 2005.

Containing the hit single Called Out In The Dark and current single This Isn’t Everything You Are, Fallen Empires is their sixth studio album, out now on Fiction Records.

By anyone’s standards it’s been a pretty good century so far.

But it’s not been overnight success for the alternative rock hitmakers from Northern Ireland.

Formed at the University of Dundee in 1994, now based in Glasgow, the band were propelled to international fame in 2006 with the hit single Chasing Cars.

Special guest support in Sheffield will be Everything Everything. All under 14s must be accompanied by an adult to attend the show.
