Stereophonics big up Scotland at T In The Park

Welsh stars charm the locals at Kinross

Stereophonics created the first mass sing-a-long at the Main Stage on the first day of the T In The Park festival this evening (July 11).

Getting the crowd pumped up by starting with a chant of “Scotland, Scotland”, frontman Kelly Jones then led the band through raucous versions of ‘The Bartender And The Thief’ and ‘A Thousand Trees’.

Hands-in-the-air anthems like ‘Have A Nice Day’ and ‘It Means Nothing’ got the crowd pumping, as the sun set across the Kinross site.

An intense ‘Mr Writer’ and a vibrant ‘Dakota’ brought the set to its climax as Jones endeared himself further to the locals declaring: “It’s great to be back in Scotland.”
