Stereophonics storm offstage at Singapore concert

Band halt show after Kelly Jones is hit in the face by a flip-flop

Stereophonics stormed offstage at a gig in Singapore after lead singer Kelly Jones was hit by a sandal.

The band were performing at Fort Canning Park on Friday (April 30) when a fan hurled a flip-flop at Jones‘ face, who halted their performance to pick up the object.

The singer then muttered “thank you” to the crowd before tossing the shoe aside and walking off stage with his bandmates.


Security guards hauled the man responsible outside, before Jones and his bandmates returned to the stage to finish their set, reports Yahoo News.

The band are set to head out on a UK tour later this month which will see them perform the first gig at the new Cardiff City Stadium.

Stereophonics will play:

Aberdeen Exhibition Centre (May 30)
Bournemouth Windsor Hall (June 1)
Brighton Centre (2)
Cardiff City Stadium (5)
