Snow Patrol To Play Massive Homecoming Show At Tennent's Vital In Their Only European Date This Summer 2013

Tennent's Lager and MCD are thrilled to reveal that Snow Patrol will return to Tennent's Vital this summer to play a massive homecoming show at Belfast's Boucher Road Playing Fields on Thursday 15th August. In a major coup for organisers, the band's headline slot on the Day 2 of the festival will be their only European date this summer. Kodaline and Foy Vance have also been added to the bill for Day 2 of Tennent's Vital.
 
Snow Patrol played the very first Tennent's Vital back in 2002, returned to headline in 2006, and now they're set to receive a local hero's welcome when they bring their epic festival anthems back home to Belfast this August. The five-piece soared to international stardom after releasing their chart-topping breakthrough album Final Straw, which yielded the band's first top 5 hit, Run and bagged them the inaugural Ivor Novello for Best Album in 2004. Its multi-platinum-selling, smash hit follow-up Eyes Open featured the epic Chasing Cars - a huge hit which was hailed Best Song of All Time by Virgin Radio listeners, number one song of the noughties by Channel 4 viewers and became the most played song of the decade in the UK.
 
Hailed Irish Band of the Decade by Hot Press in 2009, they are recipients of an impressive array of Meteor Music Awards, including Best Irish Band (2005, 2007, 2010), Best Irish Album (Final Straw and Eyes Open), Best Live Performance and Most Downloaded Song (Chasing CarsÑ). Their long-awaited return to Tennent's Vital promises to be an epic, unmissable occasion.
 
Dublin four-piece Kodaline have had a phenomenal start to the year, after going down a storm at SXSW and topping the Irish single charts with the smash hit single High Hopes. The group release their hotly anticipated debut album In A Perfect World this summer, and are sure to get the crowd going when they play Boucher Road Playing Fields this August.
 
Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance made a big impression with his 2012 release The Melrose EP, and is set to follow it up with his new album Joy of Nothing this summer. Celebrated for his thought-provoking, powerful lyrics and spine-tingling vocals, he's been hailed as one of the finest song-writers to emerge from Northern Ireland in recent years.
 
Last month organisers revealed that US rock giants Kings of Leon will headline Day 1 of the festival (14th August), with more top acts set to be revealed by organisers in the coming months.
