snow patrol: England (Nottingham), July 16, 2006
The audience absolutely loved them. Bit of heavy moshing going on during most of the songs, everybody singing along. They started with spitting games which was great to kick off with because everyone knows it and it really gets people going.

Sound: Garys singing in past gigs has been a little naff, but this was different. He sang the songs so much better live than iv ever heard before, I was so impressed. The general sound of the whole gig was amazing as well. A lot of this was probably down to the size of the venue. Being only small, the sound of everything was so good. Plus if you get close to the front you hear the backline of the amps clearer which makes the instruments sound loads better than through the pa. Epic. // 9

Perfomance: The audience absolutely loved them. Bit of heavy moshing going on during most of the songs, everybody singing along. They started with spitting games which was great to kick off with because everyone knows it and it really gets people going. Did a load from the new album (Eyes Open) too which were amazing. Best song as always is Run. Every person in the room sings along with that song as loud as they can I it was uber loud. Gary finished run by just lettin the audience finish it, which was followed by a solid few minutes of constant cheering from everyone, my voice had gone by the end of it! The lighting was amazing and really added to the atmosphere. Very well organized. // 10

Overall Impression: The gig was at Nottingham Rock City on the 16th of July 2006, normally with Snow Patrol being so popular, they wouldn't play a venue this small but because this was a charity gig they played it for free and everything. Because it was charity there were loads of new bands supporting (too many really) most of which were really good. Snow Patrol didn't get on stage till about 10.30 and played through till about 12pm. Tickets were 25 which all went to charity (cancer relief) so at least it was for a good cause. Would have easily been worth the money even if it wasn't tho. Best bit was the moshing, and the getting right to the front, uber close to the stage, and coming away with a setlist too! Great fun would definately see them again but would rather it was in a small venue again. // 8
