Their 2021 show will be a special end-of-year celebration not to be missed and marks a return to a venue, which Stereophonics have previously headlined in 2001 and 2003.

Over the past two decades Stereophonics have played at some of the biggest venues to fans all across the globe, achieving seven number 1 albums, ten top-10 albums, 23 Platinum Sales Awards, 5 BRIT nominations and 1 BRIT Award win. Headlining arenas and festivals to legions of dedicated fans, and with 8.5 million albums sold in the UK alone, Stereophonics stand as undeniable giants of the current music scene.

Commenting on the show Kelly Jones said: “The Millennium Stadium is the place I saw my first gig with all my older brothers watching the Rolling Stones in 1989 at the old Arms Park. I was about 14. Then we headlined it in 2001 and 2003. After almost two years of being locked down and families all having their own stories of stress and pressure and loss I wanted to give something to the Welsh people to feel good about. Something we can celebrate – music and singing along. So, I asked some good friends. Tom a man who has shared a stage with literally everyone in show business, I’ve had some of the best nights of my life with him and I’m sure this will be another! And I have always loved Catfish and The Bottlemen – Van has always been a big fan of us since he was a kid. There’s a welcome in the stadium for everyone, come raise a glass and make some memories.”

Welsh musical icon Sir Tom Jones, who is celebrating the recent release of his Number One album Surrounded By Time, will be taking to the Principality Stadium stage to mark his long-awaited return to his home country of South Wales. Says Sir Tom: I’ve been good friends with Stereophonics for over twenty years, and was delighted to be asked by Kelly to join them for a very special show in a very special place. I can’t wait to be there to share a great night with you all!

Four-piece Catfish And The Bottlemen, one of the UK’s biggest alternative rock bands, have re-ignited the post-pandemic live music scene with their summer 2021 headline appearances at Reading, Leeds and Neighbourhood festivals, as well as performing their biggest ever Welsh show at Singleton Park in Swansea earlier this month.
