By Lynn News Reporter

Welsh rock band Stereophonics have announced they will be playing at Thetford Forest in June with tickets on sale this week.

Since receiving the Best Newcomer Brit Award in 1998, the band rose to prominence through a succession of ten ten hits such as ‘Have a Nice Day’ and ‘Dakota’.

The band will be performing material from their extensive back catalogue including from No 1 albums Performance and Cocktails, Just Enough Education to Perform, You Gotta Go There To Come Back, and Language. Sex. Violence. Other?.


These successful albums followed the band’s breakthrough album Word Gets Around, which led to them receiving their 1998 Brit Award.

A tenth studio album was released in 2017 entitled Scream Above The Sounds.

Tickets for the live gig on Sunday, June 23 will go on sale on Friday, January 18 at 9am.

Selling for £55 with a £6 booking fee, the tickets can be attained by contacting the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or online at www.forestryengland.uk/music.

Two of the original band members Kelly Jones and Stuart Cable grew up together on the same street in the coal-mining village of Cwmaman.

The band started playing in Jones’ father’s garage.
