Stereophonics have announced that they will be headlining the “We’ll Keep A Welcome” show at Caerdydd's Principality Stadium this winter.


The multi-platinum four piece will be joined by Sir Tom Jones and Catfish and The Bottlemen.


Their 2021 show marks a return to a venue which Stereophonics have previously headlined in 2001 and 2003.


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!"


Welsh musical icon Sir Tom Jones, who is celebrating the recent release of his Number One album Surrounded By Time, said: "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!"
