Well, Snow Patrol were finally able to do a show in the U.S., fighting off throat problems, terrorists, airports, and everything else. They made it to Boston last night.

They were originally scheduled to play at the Avalon back in June, which holds about 2,000 people and had sold out immediately. The venue changed to the Bank Of America Pavilion, outside on the waterfront, but was much bigger (holds 5,000). Well, they sold that out, too. The lead singer, Gary, commented that it was the largest show for them in the U.S. so far.

People who had original Avalon tickets got premium seating up front, on a first come, first serve basis. I showed up with my friend in the middle of the opening act's set (a group called Aberdeen City, whom I've never heard of, but were actually decent). We ended up sitting in the 6th row, just left of center. Absolutely perfect.

The show was amazing. Gary was smiling widely the whole time - I think he was just so happy to be playing a gig in the U.S. again after everything they'd gone through. Not a really long show, but then again, they've only got two hit albums and four overall under their belts, so I wasn't expecting anything different. It went about 80 minutes or so.

Highlights for me were "Make This Go On Forever", "Open Your Eyes", and "Run". "Chasing Cars" was in the middle of the set and had the whole place singing. If you were there with your girlfriend or wife, it was the perfect song. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for me. The opening salvo of "Spitting Games" and "Wow" really starts the show off with a bang. A lot of material from the Final Straw album was played.

My only disappointment with the show, and it's a big one, was the puzzling omission of "Hands Open". Why they skipped that, I have no idea, as it's one of their bigger songs now.

Here's the setlist to the best of my memory, but I'll probably have some songs slightly out of order. I haven't seen it posted anywhere else online yet. Hopefully someone recorded it...


Spitting Games
Wow
Chocolate
It's Beginning To Get To Me
Headlights
Grazing Knees
Chasing Cars
Shut Your Eyes
Ways & Means
How To Be Dead
Make This Go On Forever
Gleaming Auction
Run
You're All I Have

Encore:
Open Your Eyes
Tiny Little Fractures


Everyone waiting in the U.S. for this show won't be disappointed come September.

That is odd...

Great review. I can't wait until the 14th.

Revised Boston setlist. I mixed up "Gleaming Auction" with "Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking" and had the running order a bit out of whack in the middle.

Wow
Chocolate
It's Beginning To Get To Me
Headlights
Grazed Knees
Chasing Cars
Shut Your Eyes
How To Be Dead
Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking
Make This Go On Forever

Hey, I was close...

Short review of the show tonight in Detroit. Definitely worth the prolonged wait!

That sucks.

Gary told us last night they were coming back in February ( ) - maybe they'll swing by ATL again.

Is anyone else completely sick of Chasing Cars now?

I hate it when songs I've liked for almost half a year get popular on the radio all of the sudden and then get ridiculously overplayed (I'm looking at you, The Scientist.)

Since I don't listen to the radio, no.

Same here. And before the last time listed on my last played sig, I couldn't tell you how long it had been since I last heard it.

Last night's show was extremely energetic and riveting. I haven't been to a small club show that had me so into it as I was last night, at least not in a long time. They really blew me away, and you'd never tell that Gary's voice had had problems earlier this year. They were great - everything a kickass rock show should be.

I'd love it if they did. I had to miss the rescheduled date because I had class and I cannot miss it.

I was tired of Chasing Cars, but then I watched the season finale of Grey's Anatomy last night and that changed my mind.
