DECADE IN THE SUN
UK Greatest Hits Tour Announced
Stereophonics will follow up their hotly anticipated appearance at V Festival with a UK greatest hits tour and album.
Stereophonics - Kelly Jones, Richard Jones and Javier Weyler - are one of the UK's most successful bands. Originally formed in Cwmaman, South Wales in 1996, the band have transcended their Britpop beginnings to become giants of the British rock scene, amassing 11 top five hits, 21 top twenty hits, and 9 million worldwide album sales.
The tour will revisit all the best moments from the band's 'decade in the sun', from early classics like 'The Bartender And The Thief' to songs from their latest UK no. 1 album 'Pull The Pin'. This impressive canon of hits will also be brought together for a first 'best of' collection, released November 17th on V2.
Entitled 'Decade In The Sun: The Best Of Stereophonics', this is a timely collection that brings together all the band's most memorable tracks. Available as single CD, deluxe double CD (set in hardback book) and DVD, 'Decade In The Sun' spans all six of the band's studio albums, five of which reached number one in the UK charts.
Manchester band The Courteeners have been confirmed as very special guests to the Stereophonics during the bands Winter UK tour.
After a host of blistering Summer festival appearances, and with their own forthcoming October tour all but sold out, the indie quartet will join the Welsh rockers for 14 Arena dates in December.
