Kelly Jones and crew are currently performing an intimate (by their standards) sold-out UK tour which hits smaller venues during the next couple of weeks.
After that, before their recent announcement, you'd have struggled to see them live if you weren't a fan of standing in a wet field at this year's V Festival (just kidding - it'll be warm and sunny, promise).
After the summer winds down, Stereophonics will be back on tour at more typical venues throughout November after announcing a hefty tour. The first stop on the arena jaunt will be Glasgow on 8th November, followed by Aberdeen, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Leeds and many more, winding-up at the O2 Arena in London on the 28th. Staying as true to their roots as they can, the band will perform two shows at Cardiff's Motorpoint on 24th and 25th, with the possibility of more shows being added as demand dictates (not guaranteed though!).
Tickets on sale now, priced from £35 upwards depending on location.
Their most recent album, "Graffiti on a Train", was released earlier in March, earning the band another Top 3 album-placing which may well have been the prompt for this huge announcement.
