The stereophonics celebrate the 20 year anniversary of their ground-breaking gig at Swansea's Morfa Stadium and release of Performance and Cocktails with a special performance at Swansea's Singleton Park.
Cwmaman’s finest and one of Britain’s best live bands the Stereophonics have announced a special performance at Singleton Park, Swansea on Saturday 13th July 2019.
The stadium rockers will perform in their South Wales heartland to celebrate 20 years since their career milestone show in Swansea at Morfa Stadium to 55,000 people and the release of ‘Performance and Cocktails’. Believe it or not it will be the band’s first time back in South-West Wales since their Morfa Stadium show in 1999. The now iconic album, which was the band's second studio
release, gave the ‘phonics three straight top five singles in the British charts with The Bartender and the Thief reaching No.3, and both Just Looking and Pick a Part That's New reaching No.4.
Over the past two decades the Stereophonics have played at some of the world’s biggest venues to fans of all nationalities, amassing over 10 million album sales in that time. More recently in 2018 the band performed to sell-out crowds across the globe, including a huge 15-date arena tour, summer homecoming gigs in Wrexham and Cardiplus headline shows at Kendal Calling, Y Not Festival and Victorious Festival.
Speaking about the latest announcement, Kelly Jones said:
“Performance and Cocktails put us on the world map, and also on the TV and the Radio, which meant a lot of people went back to discover Word Gets Around and made our first album platinum! Morfa Stadium was where we set Performance and Cocktails alight, and it was a one off day that can never be beaten. It was perfect. I’m not a man that likes to go backwards, this event is merely a birthday party, so come along and help us blow out the candles.”
