The Stereophonics frontman dedicated a song to the Chasing Cars outfit, after they were forced to pull out of the festival due to medical issues.

Stereophonics paid tribute to Snow Patrol during their headline set at Latitude 2019.

The Welsh rockers replaced the Scottish and Northern Irish rockers at the top of the bill at the Suffolk Festival, after they were forced to cancel their festival slots due to "medical issues".

Speaking to the crowd at the festival - which took place this weekend - frontman Kelly Jones said: "We'll send this one out to the boys in Snow Patrol. It's a shame you couldn't be here..."

The band then played out their Mr. and Mrs. Smith track, which is taken from their 2015 Keep The Village Alive album.

Watch our clip of the moment above.
