Gary Lightbody Announces Belfast Christmas Show

Snow Patrol man plays a special solo acoustic performance at the Waterfront on December 22

Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody will return to Belfast for an intimate homecoming show at the Waterfront this December.

The announcement follows a string of similar stripped down performances which have recently kept the frontman occupied on the West Coast of America.

Tickets for his December 22 gig at the Waterfront are seated and go on sale this Friday, October 16 at 9.00am from the Ulster Hall box office and online.

Lightbody has been vocal of late in support of Ireland's sporting success in both the Rugby World Cup and the Euro 2015 qualifiers, while Snow Patrol's long-awaited first studio album since 2011's Fallen Empires is reportedly on the cards for the next year.
