Celebrating the 20 Year anniversary of Swansea’s Morfa Stadiumand Performance & Cocktails
Saturday 13th July 2019, Singleton Park
One of Britain’s best live bands Stereophonics has announced a special performance at Singleton Park, Swansea on Saturday 13th July 2019.
The stadium rockers will perform in their South Wales homeland to celebrate 20 years since the career milestone show in Swansea at Morfa Stadium to 50,000 people and the release of ‘Performance and Cocktails’. This now iconic album, which was the band’s second studio release, gave Stereophonics 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 Stereophonics have played at some of the biggest venues to fans all across the globe, 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 Cardiff plus 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 second! 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.”
Stereophonics are Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar), Richard Jones (bass), Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums).
