Gary Lightbody and friends have provided further proof that the future of the music business may well be tickets and T-shirts.

Fans who buy tickets for Snow Patrol’s Australian shows in September will receive a free copy of the band’s Final Straw album with every ticket purchased.

“Buy four tickets and you get four albums to listen to, hang from your Xmas tree or use as frisbees – but we’d prefer you listened and sang along at the shows,” said Lightbody.

However, the band’s current album, Eyes Open, continues to sell and sell. It has just broken the million mark in the US.
