STEREOPHONICS, V98 Main Stage stars who perform in Leeds on Saturday and in Chelmsford on Sunday, have just announced details of their biggest indoor concerts ever.

The Welsh band, who have already announced a large-scale UK tour for October, are to play Newport Centre on December 2 and Cardiff International Arena on December 17 following their sell-out success at Cardiff Castle earlier this year. Support acts have yet to be confirmed.

Tickets for the two new shows and the October show are on sale now from the NME 24-hour ticketline on 0870 1212 500. Calls are charged at national (UK) standard rate.

The Stereophonics, who are currently recording their second album, due for release early next year, will release a video of their gig at Cardiff Castle will be released this autumn. The film will feature the entire gig, intercut with interviews and backstage japery.
