Ahead of her first-ever trip to New Zealand, we sat down with Swedish singer-songwriter Leon to chat about making her debut album and taking it to stages around the world.
Irish rockers Snow Patrol are heading back to New Zealand this August, but this time will be extra special, with the band performing the tour in acoustic mode.
Fresh from touring around North America supporting Ed Sheeran on his stadium run, Snow Patrol will venture our way to perform a run of special and intimate acoustic shows.
The band will perform as a three-piece featuring singer and guitarist Gary Lightbody, Johnny McDaid on guitar, piano, and vocals and Nathan Connolly on guitar and vocals.
Snow Patrol will, of course, be playing all your favourite tracks including ‘Run’,‘Open Your Eyes’, and ‘Chasing Cars’, alongside songs from their 2018 album Wildness – except on this run, the band will perform the tracks you know and live like you’ve never heard them before.
In the twenty-plus years since they released their debut album Songs for Polarbears, Snow Patrol have well and truly cemented their place as one of the biggest bands in the world. Their list of accolades is as impressive as it is exhausting, with 15 million global album sales to their name, 5 UK Platinum albums, Grammy and Mercury Music Prize nominations, and 8x Platinum ARIA accreditations. And that’s barely scratching the surface.
These three-piece acoustic shows are a must-see for any Snow Patrol fan.
Snow Patrol will perform at ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre in Auckland on Thursday 8 August. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.co.nz.
