Snow Patrol are the latest act to announce a massive UK and EU tour, and they’ll be paying a visit to Manchester next year.

Following in the footsteps of recent tour announcements from the likes of Dublin boyband The Script, US rapper Travis Scott, and pop megastar Billie Eilish over the past couple of weeks, Snow Patrol have just revealed that they’re next up to take to the stage at Manchester’s newest live entertainment arena, Co-op Live.

The Northern Irish trio are heading out on an eight-date tour of the UK and Ireland in early 2025, and that includes a visit to our city in mid February.

After performing in some of the UK’s biggest cities in the days prior – including London’s O2, the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, and shows in Cardiff, Glasgow, and Hull – Gary Lightbody, Nathan Connolly, and Johnny McDaid will stop off Manchester.

They’ll be performing at Co-op Live on Saturday 22 February 2024.


The UK and EU tour announcement comes alongside another couple of exciting pieces of news for the three-piece band.

They’ve also revealed that they’ll be releasing their first studio album in six years, titled The Forest Is The Path, later this year on 13 September, as well as new single called ‘The Beginning’.
