Stereophonics announce December 2012 mini-tour

Welsh rockers will play five dates on the Christmas stint

Stereophonics have announced a mini-tour for December 2012.

The Welsh rockers will play five dates, kicking off at Newport’s Centre on December 15, finishing up at London’s Troxy on December 20. They will be supported by former Supergrass man Gaz Coombes.

Earlier this month, the band debuted the first song from their forthcoming eighth album, ‘Violins and Tambourines’. You can watch the video for the track, which is directed by frontman Kelly Jones, below. Stereophonics’ new album, also called ‘Violins and Tambourines’, is set for release next year. It follows their 2009 LP ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’.


The band recently became a four-piece, welcoming drummer Jamie Morrison to the band – replacing Javier Weyler – who joins Jones, Richard Jones on bass and Adam Zindani on guitar.

In July, they helped to open up the London 2012 Olympic Games at a gig in Hyde Park, alongside Duran Duran, Paolo Nutini and Snow Patrol.

Stereophonics will play:

Newport Centre (December 15)
Manchester Academy (16)
Glasgow O2 Academy (17)
Birmingham O2 Academy (19)
London Troxy (20)
