Snow Patrol latest

Get the truth about the Snow Patrol and Athlete in Dubai rumours

The Chi gig that was rumoured to play host to Snow Patrol on February 5 has been postponed to the end of the month.

But that doesn’t mean Snow Patrol will be in town any time soon. It emerges that the UK band were, despite the claims of some other media outlets, never actually booked to play at the Dubai club. No – they were only in talks with promoters in Dubai, and a contract away from making the whole thing official.

With time ticking down, promoters were looking last night at replacing the band with Ivor Novello-winning London band Athlete but instead chose to postpone the gig to ‘sometime towards the end of February’. Exactly who’ll be playing the gig is unknown.

Do you think Snow Patrol should play Chi at the end of February? Or does that honour belong to another band entirely? Tell us in the comments below.
