Snow Patrol will be back in Belfast at the start of 2012 for their first major homecoming concert since last year's Ward Park gig.

The band will play the Odyssey on Monday, January 23, preceded by an O2 show in Dublin on Saturday, January 21.

Tickets for the Belfast show are expected to sell out immediately and extra dates could be added on. The five-piece recently released an EP, Called Out In The Dark, and latest album Fallen Empires is due out in November.

Meanwhile, the Grammy and Brit-nominated indie group will play a short acoustic set at the Ulster Hall in Belfast tonight for hundreds of extras involved in filming the climactic scene of Belfast movie Good Vibrations at the venue.
