The Stereophonics announced earlier that Fireroad and Jake Bugg will be supporting them at their sold out Wrexham My Racecourse show on Saturday, 2nd June 2018.
Both supports acts will then join the band again a week later at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 9th June.
These two special outdoor summer shows follow a busy schedule for Stereophonics who have already this year played 9 European dates and are now currently in the middle of 15-date sell-out arena tour across UK & Ireland.
Jake Bugg is also currently on an acoustic UK tour of his own and will join the band in June for what promises to be two unforgettable shows. Jake recently released album number four ‘Hearts That Strain’ (EMI, September 2017) five years after the release of his acclaimed self-titled debut album.
Stereophonics latest record, ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ (Parlophone, October 2017), came twenty years after their debut ‘Word Gets Around’ – the band’s tenth studio album follows the previous 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.
Speaking about the latest show announcements the band said: “It's a privilege to have the following we have in Wales. The fans have stuck with us and believed in us no matter what path we have tried. We try to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and from doing that we see so many new young fans that have come on board also. The stadium shows are a celebration of twenty years of music. Songs that have come honestly and truthfully and then I can't believe I get to hear all those people singing them back to us. I can't wait to play in front of the crowd that made us!” ~Kelly
