Award winning band Snow Patrol is set to play live in Manila on August 9, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Formed in 1994, Snow Patrol has undergone member changes in the past but they are undoubtedly going strong. Their soulful tunes can be felt over the air waves with Gary Lightbody leading the vocals, Johnny Quinn on drums, Nathan Connolly on lead guitar, Paul Wilson on bass, and Tom Simpson on keyboards.

The Irish alternative rock band is famed for hits such as "Chasing Cars", "Eyes Open", and "Signal Fire".
