Snow Patrol Drummer Bows Out of Tour

Published: 2007-01-23
Snow Patrol drummer Jonny Quinn has been forced to bow out of the band's European and Australian tour due to injury.

Quinn broke an arm while snowboarding in the Alps forcing him to find a replacement for his upcoming tour to promote the band's new record Eyes Open. Stepping up to the sticks in Quinn's place is former Therapy dummer Graham Hopkins who according to NME, "is a member of Irish rock band Boss Volenti, and recently played on Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riodan's forthcoming solo record."

He is scheduled to miss the band's European, Australian and New Zealand tour with stretches from February 4 till February 20. No word on whether the injury will affect the band's North American tour that will last from March 3 till April 6 and include these Canadian dates:

March 30, Montreal, QC - Metropolis
March 31, Toronto, ON - Ricoh Coliseum
April 7, Winnipeg, MB - Burton Cummings Theatre
April 9, Calgary, AB - MacEwan Hall
April 10, Edmonton, AB - Shaw Conference Centre
