SNOW Patrol fans will get to see their favourite band’s first live performance in Singapore at Fort Canning Park on Aug 6 at 8pm.
The Glasgow-based band’s concert is part of the Fallen Empires Tour in conjunction with the release of its sixth studio album, Fallen Empires.
Featuring the singles, Called Out In The Dark, This Isn’t Everything You Are, New York and In The End, the album debuted at No. 5 on the US Billboard 200 chart, the highest so far for the alt-rock band.
Formed in 1994, Snow Patrol has received Grammy and Brit Awards nominations, and sold over 10 million albums worldwide.
Known for hits like Run, You’re All I Have, Chasing Cars, Signal Fire and Take Back The City, the band consists of Northern Irish and Scottish lads Gary Lightbody (vocals and rhythm guitar), Nathan Connolly (lead guitar), Paul Wilson (bass), Jonny Quinn (drums) and Tom Simpson (keyboards).
New Order awaits you in August
BRITISH group New Order will also be performing live at Singapore’s Fort Canning Park on Aug 22 at 8pm.
Formed from the ashes of tragedy, New Order paid tribute to its previous incarnation, Joy Division, while redefining the musical landscape in the process and creating a sound the world had never heard before.
By ingeniously integrating New Wave elements with electronic dance music for a refreshing pop sound, New Order became one of the most successful and influential acts of the 1980s. The group has since released eight albums, with the latest being Waiting For The Sirens’ Call in 2005.
With over three decades of music making, the group has had a string of hits, which include Blue Monday, True Faith, Bizarre Love Triangle, World In Motion, Regret, Crystal and Krafty.
The synthesiser-heavy group from Manchester currently consists of lead vocalist Bernard Sumner, drummer Stephen Morris and bassist Tom Chapman, as well as guitarists Gillian Gilbert and Phil Cunningham.
