Stereophonics Welsh maestros Stereophonics have a busy summer ahead and so it is that they announced three intimate warm up shows. Admittedly the Bonus Arena holds 3,500 I believe so it all depends on your own personal interpretation of intimate. Given the last time I saw them I was in a crowd of somewhere around 40,000 it’s all relative really.

V Festival, Weston Park, Stafford For years, the chart topping foundations of V festival has drawn in the mainstream music crowds, the playlist hand-picked when ripe by the elitists of the industry; put together with the ease of celebrity status.

Stereophonics The crowd seemed eager to see how the evenings set would unfold. With fan-reviews of the new album seemingly exhibiting “Marmite” - like love or hate reactions, the suspense wait was over as the opening bars of “We Share The Same Sun” rung through the venue. With a mere second or so breaths being taken, there was no real stopping the boys from well and truly launching into a double-whammy of fan favorites “Bartender and the Thief” and “A Thousand Trees”, cementing the notion that new material/artistic directions aside, Leeds were definitely in store for a Stereophonics show this evening.

Stereophonics It’s not often you get the chance to see a MASSIVE band in a relatively small venue, so when it came up on the gig roster at Gig Junkies HQ that The Stereophonics were playing at Derby Assembly Rooms I was all over it like a cheap dress. Having never been to the venue I was amazed at how well organised and clean it was – two words you don’t often associate with gigs! Because of this and probably because the audience was a little bit older, there seemed to be a more serene atmosphere to the event. By Jove it was even cordial!

V Festival Weston Park Stafford If day one was all about catching an eclectic mix artists (and in hindsight having one too many beers) day two was about the golden oldies with the likes of the ‘Charlatans’, ‘Weller’ and the ‘Phonics’ all performing.
