LATEST: Snow Patrol are celebrating the return of their frontman Gary Lightbody with a special thank you gig for their patient fans. The singer, who initially ignored doctors' advice to rest his voice after suffering a severe throat infection, has been unable to sing since February (06) and was forced to scrap the band's entire US tour. However, Lightbody's latest medical consultation saw him declared fit again, and he's keen to get back to performing - even adding an extra date in Glasgow, Scotland, in December (06). The singer says, "I saw the doctor in Glasgow this week and he gave me a clean bill of health. The gigs for the rest of the year are on and we're itching to get on the road."
