Tom Simpson has been in Snow Patrol since 1996 and tonight in Belfast is his last gig. Tom is going his separate way, he’s decided he wants to do his own thing. We support him and love him as a brother.”

Tom himself, seen here menacing his farewell cake, added via Gary’s twitter: ” Thank you to all our fans. Feeling heavy hearted today. It’s been an amazing journey but I’ve come home now. God bless you all.”
