Stereophonics – one of Britain’s best-loved bands – will perform four nights of highly anticipated, intimate shows, starting out at Bournemouth’s O2 Academy on Saturday 17th and continuing with three nights at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, on December 19th, 20th and 21st. we are starting to feel old here at With guitars, the first time we interviewed the trio was back on Roker Beach in early 1994, it i great that Stereophonics are still going so strong, hats off, if I had one.
Written by Kelly Jones and co-produced with Mercury award-winning producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian), this LP follows on from their career embracing greatest hits collection ‘Decade In The Sun: The Best of Stereophonics’, which sold almost a million copies in two months.
Super deluxe editions of the band’s first two classic albums –1997’s ‘Word Gets Around’ and 1999’s No.1 ‘Performance and Cocktails’ – are out now, also on Mercury Records and the band celebrated the release with two very special Hammersmith Apollo performances last October, playing both LPS in their entirety.
Stereophonics are vocalist Kelly Jones, bassist Richard Jones, drummer Javier Weyler and guitarist Adam Zindani.
