Snow Patrol to play at Eden Sessions - September 16 2021
The Eden Project announced today that Snow Patrol will be performing at this year’s Eden Sessions in September.
The rock superstars will play at the home of the Biomes on September 16, 2021.
Snow Patrol will be making their long-awaited return to the Eden Sessions after their memorable sold-out gig in 2006.
Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said today: “We can’t wait to welcome Snow Patrol back to the Sessions.
“Their appearance 15 years ago remains one of the most acclaimed shows we’ve ever staged and their return is thrilling for us and for their huge fan base.”
Tickets for Snow Patrol cost £50 plus £6 booking fee and go on sale to members of Inside Track at 12 noon on Thursday April 29. Tickets go on general sale at 12 noon on Tuesday May 4 at www.edenproject.com.
In 2020, Snow Patrol released the five-track EP The Fireside Sessions. The tracks were written in collaboration with the band’s fans as part of their Saturday livestreams and recorded during lockdown.
All proceeds from sales and streaming downloads went to The Trussell Trust charity, who support a network of foodbanks in the UK.
Since their debut album in 1998, the band have accumulated many critical and commercial accolades, including more than 17 million global album sales, more than one billion global track streams, five UK Platinum Albums, and are Grammy, BRIT Award and Mercury Music Prize nominated.
In 2005, Snow Patrol’s third album Final Straw won the Ivor Novello Album Award. The album was also listed in NME’s 2006 list of 100 Best Albums of All Time.
The band released their hit album Eyes Open in 2006 which became the biggest-selling album in the UK that year and included the iconic track Chasing Cars. In 2009, Channel 4 named it the Song of the Decade and in 2011 it won the Q Award for Classic Song.
Snow Patrol released their seventh studio album Wildness in May 2018. It debuted at number two in the UK Albums Chart and has been certified gold.
It was followed in 2019 by Reworked which included three new songs as well as 13 re-envisioned versions of classic songs, celebrating Snow Patrol's 25th anniversary as a band.
Alongside Chasing Cars, other notable hits from the band are Run, You’re All I Have, Signal Fire, Take Back the City, Just Say Yes and Called Out in the Dark.
Snow Patrol will be joined at their Eden Session by special guest Irish singer-songwriter Lucy Blue.
Eden previously announced Ben Howard (appearing on September 11) as the first act confirmed for the September Eden Sessions.
Also recently confirmed are two rescheduled shows for next year’s (2022) Eden Sessions.
My Chemical Romance will take the stage in front of the Biomes on May 17, 2022, and Lionel Richie will play on June 14, 2022. Original tickets remain valid for these shows and any other show that is rescheduled.
