A huge Children In Need event will take place at Stirling Castle on the 19th November. Snow Patrol will be playing a 20 minute set with ‘Run’ being televised on the BBC’s coverage of the evening. Sadly all tickets were snapped up before the headliners were announced.
It has also been announced that Snow Patrol will be headlining this years Hogmanay party that takes place in George Square in Glasgow on the 31st December. The New Year bash will attract up to 25,000 revellers to see in 2005 and you will need a pass to attend. In 2003 these passes were snapped up within a few weeks, and with such a high-profile act headlining this year they are expected to go even more quickly.
The boys will perform twice on the night, before and after midnight, and more acts for the event to be announced in the coming weeks. The event is organised by Glasgow City Council and will be hosted by Radio Clyde DJ George Bowie. It begins at 8.30pm on December 31 and festivities end at 1.30am on January 1st 2005.
The passes for the Hogmanay show go on sale at 10am on Saturday November 13, priced at £2.50 and are limited to a maximum of four per household. They can be bought by credit and debit card from the hotline on 0870 333 6205, from Ticketmaster centres, or at the Virgin Megastores in Argyle Street and Buchanan Street.
