Stereophonics and Tom Jones have announced a giant Christmas gig at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Also playing at the event on 18 December will be Catfish And The Bottlemen. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, 10 September, costing between £45 and £85.

The Stereophonics are releasing a new album, Oochya!, next March and will go on tour early next year.

“The Principality Stadium is the place I went with my older brothers, aged 14, to see my first gig – The Rolling Stones in 1989 – but it was still the Arms Park back then,” Lead singer Kelly Jones said. “Then we headlined the place ourselves in 2001 and 2003.

“After almost two years of being locked down and families all having their own stories of stress, pressure, and loss, I wanted something for people to feel good about and celebrate.

“So I asked some good friends like Sir Tom to help – he’s a man who has shared a stage with literally everyone in showbusiness.

“I’ve had some of the best nights of my life with him and I’m sure this will be another.

“And I’ve always loved Catfish and The Bottlemen. Their singer Van has always been a big fan of us since he was a kid.

“There’s a welcome in the stadium for everyone – come raise a glass and make some memories.”
