After a fairly quiet start (the seated members of the audience looked, in the words of Gary Lightboy (Snow Patrol's singer) like they were "watching Wimbledon") the audience started to warm up and the atmosphere became electric with people jumping up and down, punching the air, clapping, singing along and generally just having a brilliant time.
The acoustics in the venue were amazing and the light show and video screens were stunning. Snow Patrol were on top form, joking, smiling and buzzing throughout. They played a heart-wrenchingly beautiful version of "Make This Go on Forever" (my personal favourite) as well as their hits - "Chocolate", "Run", "Open Your Eyes" but the climax of the night was the absolutely brilliant rendition of "Chasing Cars." Ooooh goosebumps!
If you get the chance to see Snow Patrol live don't miss it! This gig goes down as one of my top 5 gigs of all time.
