Stereophonics to play ‘intimate’ gig at city university
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.
