In June, Snow Patrol cancelled a number of upcoming tour dates, including a performance at Glastonbury festival, as a result of “serious” injury.

The Guardian reported at the time that the band’s guitarist Johnny McDaid required surgery for a serious neck injury and that guitarist Nathan Connolly was also on leave from the band as he was recovering from nerve damage.
