Stereo­phon­ics to play ‘in­ti­mate’ gig at city univer­sity

Western Mail - - NEWS -

STEREO­PHON­ICS have an­nounced they are go­ing back to where it be­gan with a “small and in­ti­mate” gig in Cardiff.

Kelly Jones re­vealed that only 1,200 tick­ets will be avail­able for the gig at Cardiff Univer­sity’s Great Hall. The last time they played there was in 1997.

Kelly rem­i­nisced about watch­ing bands there when he was start­ing out, and how he would throw cas­settes of his band’s mu­sic onto the stage.

The an­nounce­ment was made live on DJ Chris Moyles’ Ra­dio X break­fast show.

The show, on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2, will be in sup­port of the ra­dio sta­tion’s char­ity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

The an­nounce­ment was made just weeks be­fore the re­lease of Stereo­phon­ics’ 10th stu­dio al­bum, Scream Above The Sounds, on Oc­to­ber 27.

Band mem­ber Richard Jones said: “Cardiff Uni was the place for us to check out quite a few bands when we were younger, and it’s the venue where we were given our first gold records for Word Gets Around.

“So for us to be com­ing back and do­ing a gig for a great char­ity it will be bring­ing back lots of fond mem­o­ries. Hope­fully it’s still £1 a pint in the stu­dent uni bar!” Tick­ets went on sale to­day.
