Stereophonics have announced a show at the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London for January 21st next year, hosted by Absolute Radio.
“We haven’t played the Forum since we opened up for The Manics on our very first tour,” the band’s frontman Kelly Jones told Absolute DJ Dave Berry. “It must have been 1997? We’ve maybe done one headline show there – but I haven’t been there for a very long time. We used to play The Bull and Gate Pub next door a lot though.”
“We all know January can be a dull month after all the excess of the Christmas period,” Berry has said. “So Absolute Radio have enlisted rock royalty, Stereophonics to help shake things up a bit with this extra special London gig. If your New Year’s resolution is to get out to more gigs, what better way to start off than at this one?”
The gig will come around not long before Stereophonics are due to kick off a big UK arena tour in Sheffield.
