SNOW PATROL's frontman Gary Lightbody has been warmly invited to revisit his former Glasgow home and "pop in for a cuppa" with its current owners. 

The band's singer told at TRNSMT how he stopped by the West End house for a trip down memory lane prior to his performance at Glasgow Green.

He revealed to fans that he wrote the band’s 2004 power ballad 'Run' during his time there and then went on to ask if the property's current occupiers were among the crowd.

He said: "The weird guy taking pictures of your house was me. I wasn’t casing the joint.

“I wrote that song in Glasgow 20 years ago.

“That song went on to be the very first hit we ever had and it’s because of Scotland.”

After reading yesterday's Glasgow Times article, the current homeowners decided to reach out to Gary to extend their invitation.

Glasgow Times:

Claire Woodward-Nutt, who bought the house from the 45-year-old in 2012, said: “My daughter noticed the Glasgow Times article and forwarded it on to us. It was surprising but nice to see he had stopped by before his performance at TRNSMT.

“Next time you are in Glasgow, Gary, feel free to pop in for a cuppa and a hello.

“There will be a cup of tea waiting for you with myself and my husband, Alan.”

The West End residents and Snow Patrol fans admit they are proud of the story that their home has to tell. 

Claire added: “Our home has a bit of a story in it – when we went to view it, Gary was using what we now have as our garage as a sound studio room making his music.

“We actually asked him to take it down before we moved in. And, a Best New Irish Band award had dropped behind the fridge freezer before we moved in.

“That was soon reclaimed by his chum a few days after.

“Run is a lovely song and we as a family are big fans.

“When we moved in, we met one of Gary’s electricians who got us free tickets to go and see them in 2012. It was an amazing evening – we thoroughly enjoyed them."
