Super Furry Animals to play gig to mark Wales’ first Euro 2016 game

Welsh band to play Bordeaux on June 10

Super Furry Animals have announced a gig in France to coincide with Wales’ first game of their Euro 2016 campaign.

This summer’s competition represents the first time Wales have qualified for a major tournament since the 1958 World Cup – and their first ever appearance at the Euros. Wales play Slovakia in Bordeaux for their first game on June 11 before later facing England and Russia.

Super Furry Animals will play live in Toulouse on June 10 as a warm-up for the game.

Last year saw the band open Wales’ European qualifier against Belgium with an on-field performance at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Meanwhile, Manic Street Preachers have recorded the official anthem for Wales’ Euro 2016 campaign, titled ‘Together Stronger (C’mon Wales)’. The track will be available from May 20.

“It’s with great pride we can announce the Manics are providing the official Wales Euro 2016 song – ‘Together Stronger (C’mon Wales)’,” the band tweeted of the news.
