One of Bri­tain’s best live bands Stereo­phon­ics have an­nounced two spe­cial out­door shows in sum­mer 2018 – the leg­endary rock­ers will kick off the sum­mer play­ing a huge gig at The Race­course Ground Wrex­ham on Satur­day 2 June fol­lowed by an­other huge date at Cardiff City Sta­dium a week later on Satur­day 9 June. The band has al­ready con­firmed a busy sched­ule in the first half of 2018 with 9 Euro­pean shows ahead of a 15-date arena tour across UK & Ire­land in Fe­bru­ary and March, where they will en­ter­tain fans with a col­lec­tion of favourites as well as tracks from their new al­bum, ‘Scream Above The Sounds’. The lat­est record, re­leased on Par­lophone in Oc­to­ber 2017, comes twenty years after their de­but ‘Word Gets Around’ – the band’s tenth stu­dio al­bum fol­lows the lat­est re­lease in 2015, ‘Keep The Vil­lage Alive’, which was their sixth chart-top­ping al­bum to go along­side count­less mu­sic awards span­ning over two decades. The sum­mer 2018 dates rep­re­sent a real home­com­ing for Stereo­phon­ics, re­vis­it­ing two venues with such a strong his­tory for the band. The dy­namic four-piece first played Cardiff City Sta­dium back in 2010 and have al­ways been guar­an­teed a rap­tur­ous re­cep­tion ever since, in­clud­ing at a sell-out sum­mer show in 2016. When per­form­ing at the Race­course Sta­dium in the same year they be­come the first artists to play a live show there since the 1982 Wrex­ham Fes­ti­val, and the show treated fans to a truly mem­o­rable night.
