BBC.co.uk: Derry-Londonderry’s Sons And Daughters Gather For First Culture Concert

lbd#[…] Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody and Johnny McDaid both have strong Derry links.

They performed a number of songs including ‘Just Say Yes’ which was the theme for Derry’s eventual winning bid to become UK City of Culture.

During the set, they dedicated the track ‘Chasing Cars’ to the Nobel Laureate, John Hume, who was in the audience.

Mr Hume also received a standing ovation from the crowd.

“For the difficult times in Northern Ireland that we are going through the last while I’d like to dedicate this song to peace and to the man who created it,” Gary Lightbody said.
