Snow Patrol to play Trust Stadium
Snow Patrol’s output to date is on my youngest teenager’s iPod as well as mine. So, as it was she, the budding indie rock chick, who told me about the gig in time to hit TicketMaster, it only seems right that she gets the other ticket and goes to her first ever gig. I can’t remember who I saw at my first gig but I can recall the anticipation, buzz and excitement that preceded going to a concert as a teenager. I saw it all that (and a little disbelief) in her face when I called her over to look at the email confirmation on my iBook. As a grumpy old man-in-waiting, I am shamelessly flattered that she’d even be seen at a gig with her Dad. I suspect that the thought hasn’t crossed her mind yet and I’ll be having to promise that I won’t dance or sing along when the time arrives.
